ITINERARY

Day 1 - Arenal

Arrival in Guanacaste

Private and Guided Arrival Transfer with a stop in Grecia and Sarchí – from
Juan Santamaría International Airport

Grecia Town
The picturesque town of Grecia in Alajuela province has the distinction of being one of the cleanest towns in Central America. Located some 20 km north of Alajuela city, this small farming town is around a 20-minute car-drive or a 30-minute bus-ride away.
Lying northwest of the capital San Jose, Grecia is situated in Costa Rica’s Central Valley amidst beautiful mountain landscapes and rich lush sceneries. The local Tico community here is very friendly and eagerly welcomes visitors into their homes as well as their hearts. Mostly farmers by profession, the people here are relaxed and laidback.

Sarchí Town
Sarchí is Costa Rica's most famous crafts center. The most popular items on sale are "Ox Carts", elaborately painted oxcarts that traditionally carried coffee from the highlands down to the port on the Pacific coast. Originally, each region of Costa Rica had its own particular design, enabling the identification of the driver’s origin by the painted patterns on the wheels.

After your check in, you will meet the rest of your group, including your Yoga & Tantra instructors and tour manager, at the hotel lobby for a welcoming meeting and cocktails. There will be sharing of program details, scheduling of Yoga and Tantra sessions, and time for questions and answers.
