Tour description

Drive from the clouds to the sand. Spend two days in the world-famous Monteverde Cloud Forest looking for the beautiful but elusive quetzal before heading south to the sun and sea around Manuel Antonio, home to the country's most popular national park. See scores of monkeys or sloths, swim or hike along pristine beaches, or dance the night away—the local nightlife is some of the best around.
