We know taking a full week vacation is not always possible. So these are a few fun things to do in Costa Rica on a 4 day itinerary with two of the best places to stay in Costa Rica:
Thermal Springs and Beach combo
If you are short on time but still want to fit the hot springs, adrenaline and the beach, plan to arrive at Daniel Oduber International Airport at Liberia.
Day 1. Arrival into Liberia and transfer to Rio Perdido
The drive to Rio Perdido will take about 2 hours. Your lodging at Rio Perdido Hotel will include unlimited access to 100% natural Costa Rica Hot Springs. Rio Perdido (Lost River) is tainted with a light blue color and it is surrounded by Dry Tropical Forest.
Try one of the hotel´s many great cocktails at the pool bar.
Day 2. Adrenaline at the River Canyon and transfer to the beach
At 8 a.m. you will take a combination tour: you will zip line, tarzan swing and rappel over Rio Perdido and Rio Blanco beautiful canyon.
At the end of your tour (about 11 a.m.) we will drive you to Tamarindo beach. Your lodging will be at Capitan Suizo hotel, one of the best beachfront hotels in Costa Rica. Tamarindo offers a wide array of dining possibilities. We recommend: Pangas Beach Club, Falafel Bar, Green Papaya Taco Bar and El Chiringuito, among others.
Day 3. Surf and Beach time!!
Tamarindo is great for surfing and today you will learn just why! We will give you a private 2 hour lesson and then, you will be left to enjoy the beach at leisure.
Day 4. Transfer out back to Daniel Oduber Airport.
The drive back to the airport at Liberia will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Try and take a late flight so that you get to enjoy the beach.
