The deal
Costa Rica has recently been luring hordes of travelers with its tropical rainforests, picture-perfect beaches, and awe-inspiring natural wonders. But, these aren’t the only reasons people are flocking to this pristine country — it’s also incredibly affordable. Our deal hunters unearthed an 8-day Costa Rican adventure on SouthFares.com that has a jam-packed itinerary and is priced from $599 — with round-trip airfare included!

Also included in this tantalizing deal are the following:

  • Seven nights’ hotel accommodations
  • Daily breakfast
  • Round-trip airport transfers
  • Seven-day rental of a 4WD automobile

About the trip: Guests will commence their unforgettable journey in vivacious San Jose, before getting behind the wheel and heading to Arenal Volcano. Rising majestically from the jungle floor, this active volcano dominates the landscape and provides visitors with many dramatic photo-ops.

After exploring cascading Fortuna Waterfalls and Arenal Volcano National Park’s barren lava fields, guests will continue on their expedition to Monteverde Biological Reserve. Here, tourists will have the day to leisurely explore this fragile ecosystem, which is home to more than 2,000 species of plants and trees, 100 species of mammals, over 400 species of birds, and approximately 1,200 species of amphibians and reptiles.

Adventurists can then try their best rendition of the infamous “Tarzan yell” as they swing from tree tops on a canopy tour, before concluding their expedition in Manuel Antonio — where unspoiled beaches and scenic hiking trails await.
