We will stay three nights in an atmospheric colonial hotel with pool and air conditioned rooms. Granada lies on the banks of Lake Nicaragua, with scores of beautiful buildings and a central square with an imposing cathedral and colourful market.
We spend two nights in La Fortuna village, in a lovely hotel with swimming pool and views of the Arenal. On arrival you can take a walk to a nearby waterfall for a refreshing swim or hire a horse to explore the surroundings. In the evening, it is possible to visit the hot water springs around the Arenal.
With an array of restaurants, soft sands and warm waters, perfect for snorkelling. Quepos is a great base from which to explore the 682-hectare Manuel Antonio National Park with its beaches, offshore islands, lush rainforest filled with monkeys, sloth and lots of birds.
Beach-lovers will appreciate the wonderful bay with white sand and surfing or snorkelling on the coral reef is a must. Diving tours out to the reef can also be arranged.
