Costa Rica (9 days)
The northern plains showcase some of Costa Rica’s most scenic countryside and small towns. Only a two hour drive from San Jose, small agricultural communities and cattle ranches cover rolling hills and deep valleys. Known as the heart of Costa Rica, you’ll find a strong cultural identity here. The plains, rivers and, most importantly, the people make the north central a must-see in any Costa Rica program. The main attraction is the Arenal Volcano which is the youngest and most active in Costa Rica.
