Transcript of "Gwenna Costa Rica Options"

  1. 1.  Prices show are quotes only and subject to change any time without notice. To secure the price shown a deposit is needed.  Deposits start at $150 per person but depends on the airline and hotel.  Price show includes flight and hotel. Meals as stated and ground transportation as stated.  Excursions can be booked anytime to prior to departure.
  2. 2.  Though gaining in popularity, Costa Rica remains one of the "best kept secrets" of vacation destinations. Though it's only as big as West Virginia, there are few places in the world that compare for the sheer magnitude of its bio-diversity. Twelve major life zones provide refuge for over 10,000 kinds of flowering plants, 850 bird species, 3,000 butterfly species, and 209 mammal species! Active volcanoes, rainforests, cloud forests, lowland jungles, the dramatic Pacific coastline, and tranquil Caribbean beaches ramble across seven provinces. Thirty percent of the land is protected by national and private reserves, which harbor more than five percent of the world's plant and animal species.  Equally fantastic are the activities - rafting, scuba diving, jungle hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, mountain biking, and more. As the perfect complement to this vacation Eden, Costa Ricans (Ticos, as they call themselves) are friendly, peaceful people who welcome you to their country like a long-lost relative. Simultaneously, Costa Rica is known for the multi-ethnic pleasures of its capital, San José, and as a producer of some of the world's best coffee. Most Costa Rican vacations begin and end in the exciting capital, but it's what lies beyond that takes your breath away!
  3. 3.  EC0-NATURE AREAS ◦ Manuel Antonio: This is a small town with exquisite scenery and astounding ecological treasures. There are panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, evergreen vegetation, an exciting mix of comfort and adventure, and popular beaches in Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio was designated as a National Park in 1972, forever preserving its 1,700 acres of land, 136,000 acres of ocean, and the 109 mammal and 187 bird species that inhabit its coasts and forests. This privileged place of virgin forests, lagoons, mangroves, beaches, and 12 small islands is also crucial as a nesting and feeding ground for many sea birds. Venture along the jungle trails and come face to face with toucans, white-faced monkeys, red squirrels, three-toed sloths, and many more! ◦ Monteverde: This Cloud Forest Reserve is a village as well as a biological reserve. The Dry Season is the best time for bird-watching and any time of year visitors can enjoy art and butterfly galleries, orchid gardens, a serpentarium, horseback riding, family restaurants, pubs, craft shops, and more. The Reserve sits on the Continental Divide in the Tilarán Mountain Range and contains 8 life zones that shelter many rare species such as the brilliantly-plumed quetzal birds and the endangered gentle tapir, a relative of the horse. Nature trails let you journey safely and easily through this priceless ecosystem. ◦ Arenal Region: Facing one of the most active volcanoes of Costa Rica, this is a favorite destination for locals and tourists. Lake Arenal provides safe viewpoints of the volcanic fireworks, and the Arenal Reservoir is rich in aquatic resources and wildlife. Hiking and horseback riding are also popular. Take a self-guided tour through the botanical gardens, handicraft markets, greenhouses, rainforest nature trails, river, waterfalls, keep your eyes open for the more than 225 species of birds that populate the region, and don't forget a rejuvenating soak in the Tabacon Hot Springs. ◦ Osa Peninsula:At the top of the Osa Peninsula, Corcovado National Park offers an extraordinary chance to get close the diversity of nature. Beside the lush flora of this rain forest reserve, there are 624 species of mammals birds, reptiles, and amphibians to meet here. ◦ Tortuguero: Great adventures await in the tropical rain forest of Tortuguero National Park. Your boat guide will lead you among a network of canals teeming with life, from howler monkeys to herons and more.
  4. 4.  BEACH AREAS ◦ Guanacaste: The largest province in Costa Rica, Guanacaste offers miles of untouched beaches on the Pacific, and is home to the relaxed beach towns of Flamingo and Tamarindo. You'll also find some of the country's finest resort hotels and best nature parks. ◦ Puntarenas: The closest beach resort to San Jose, Puntarenas features striking and unusual volcanic black sand beaches. A great starting point for day trips to the Monteverde Cloud Forest or the Gulf of Nicoya. ◦ Jaco Beach: Excellent surfing, small native style hotels, restaurants with local flair and low key entertainment are all part of the Jaco Beach experience. The area is an ideal base for exploring the Carara Biological Reserve. ◦ Tambor: You can play all day in the warm Pacific water of Tambor, set on the Southern end of the Nicoya peninsula. In fact, it's a perfect place to get off the beaten path and onto the beach! ◦ Caribbean Coast/Limon: Experience the Caribbean as it was, and as it should be...pristine beaches, waving palm trees and small quaint hotels. Don't miss the opportunity to explore at the underwater park in Cahuita.
  5. 5.  The tropical weather in San José is usually temperate, with temperatures generally ranging between 70°-85° in the lowlands and 58°-76° in the elevated Central Valley, and San José, Monteverde, and Arenal. The Pacific coast is more arid and is the hottest region, with dry season temperature up in the 90s. Summer is the dry season, running from December to April and winter is the rainy season, running from May to November, though rain tends to fall only in the late afternoon or evening.  The month of September is characterized by essentially constant daily high temperatures, with daily highs around 80°F throughout the month, exceeding 83°F or dropping below 77°F only one day in ten.  Daily low temperatures are around 67°F, falling below 65°F or exceeding 70°F only one day in ten.  The average probability that some form of precipitation will be observed in a given day is 82%, with little variation over the course of the month.
  6. 6. Green Season  September is one of the rainiest months of the year on the west side and in the mountains of Costa Rica. The Pacific beaches and central region get significant rain most days; generally with a pattern of sunny mornings followed by showers in the afternoon or evening. Occasionally tropical lows stall off west coast or the edge of a hurricane skims across from the Caribbean bringing several days of continuous heavy rains.  The southern Pacific and Osa peninsula are inundated by days or even weeks of continuous rainfall driven by westerly winds and referred to as temporales del Pacífico. Rain is measured in feet rather than inches.  The Caribbean side of the country gets a reprieve in September and October as the Talamanca mountains force the moisture out of the westerly winds bringing clear weather especially in the southern Atlantic beach areas of Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo.
  7. 7.  With a spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano, natural hot and cold springs, four unique dining experiences, and an impressive full service Spa, The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal promises to overwhelm you in every aspect of quality, service and design.  This Costa Rica luxury resort perches one thousand feet above the Arenal Valley on a mountain ridge just six kilometers north of the active volcano but safely outside the government declared danger zone. Our higher altitude relative to other hotels in the area allows for not only incomparable views of the Arenal volcano, the lush valley, and the surrounding towns that sparkle at night, but also access to the area's famous prevailing breezes. In fact, the name Arenal volcano is an indigenous word meaning "Window of the Wind". With an average daytime high temperature of 80 degrees F in the shade and nighttime lows averaging 70 degrees F you are sure to enjoy countless comfortable hours in your balcony hammock al fresco dining, or sipping a frothy tropical cocktail in one of our spring pools.
  8. 8.  5 Star Resort  No meals included  Featured on The Bachelor in February of 2011
  9. 9.  18 free-form, landscaped pools provide great views of the volcano and a multitude of options. With temperatures ranging from 83°F to 103°F and environments that vary from raging waterfalls to tranquil forest, there's a pool for everyone.  The mineral content of the spring water and the health benefits derived from these minerals makes the springs the best mineral hot springs in La Fortuna, Arenal Costa Rica and the great value on the hot springs day tour makes The Springs Resort and Spa a "must see" destination and the premiere hot springs resort in Costa Rica.
