    Explore the more remote areas around Puntarenas by riding a vintage train inland and then boarding a boat for a cruise up the Tarcoles River, which is crawling with crocodiles.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief drive to a Pacific Railroad train station and board a vintage train bound for Salinas. The train will follow a route that was carved out of the jungle to transport coffee from the highlands to the coast.


    Along the way, you will pass one small village after another.


    Upon arriving in Salinas, you will reboard your motorcoach to drive to Hacienda Nosavar where you will board a covered river boat and cruise the Tarcoles River. The waterway is absolutely teeming with thousands of crocodiles. Some of these fearsome reptiles grow up to 15 feet long, and it is quite a sight to see them basking in the sun on the riverbanks and silently stalking prey.


    An abundance of birds also lives along the river, and you are likely to spot flycatchers, storks and kingfishers. You might also catch sight of the occasional hawk, parrot or monkey in the treetops. Following the cruise, you will head to a nearby hacienda to snack on fresh fruit while watching a folkloric show.

    Visit the must-see attractions in the capital of San Jose, including the ornate National Theater and museums dedicated to Pre-Columbian gold and jade. After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive through lush inland valleys to the sprawling city of San Jose. Besides being Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose is the country’s cultural hub and the National Theater is among its most revered institutions.


    Constructed in the late 19th century, the neo-Classical theater emulates the Paris Opera House. As you tour the interior, you can’t help but notice the lavish furnishings and beautiful murals. The massive mural on the main ceiling, entitled “Allegory of Coffee and Bananas,” is the most famous and was once depicted on Costa Rica’s five colón currency.


    You will next visit the Gold Museum, which holds one of the most extensive collections of Pre-Columbian gold in the Americas with the earliest pieces dating to 500 BC. The treasures include a human-sized gold figure clad in gold ornaments, the first coin minted in Costa Rica and a variety of amulets and jewelry.


    Similarly, pieces at the Jade Museum also date to 500 BC, when the jade trade was at its peak. Thousands of items are on display, including pieces with images of animals and others depicting religious rituals. While browsing the exhibits, you will also learn about the role jade played in war and burial rites.


    Following this cultural immersion, you will enjoy a lunch of traditional Costa Rican cuisine.

    Jaguar and Macaw Sanctuary

    The Natuwa Sanctuary at El Manantial is a Costa Rican wildlife conservation charity working to save and protect endangered species from extinction, headquartered in Aranjuez de Puntarenas.


    Natuwa works with some of the most endangered native birds of Costa Rica, focusing on the rarest species and the most fragile habitats. The main focus of the project is the Scarlet Macaw (Ara Macao) and the Great Green Macaw (Ara Ambigua), who once flew freely in many areas of Costa Rica.


    At the Sanctuary, Great Green macaws and Scarlet macaws are not bred for the pet trade. They are strictly bred in order to release their young into the wild to be set free forever. In the sanctuary the birds fly unrestricted, enjoying the trees and the fruits they can find around this habitat. The local people from the village of Aranjuez care for and watch over the wild macaws.


    In November 2014 three jaguar cubs were brought to the NATUWA Sanctuary, just a few days old. The Costa Rican government rescued them and brought them to NATUWA to be taken care of because they were orphaned. The three jaguar cubs Onka, Baguira, and Dinamú were able to survive thanks to the care they received at NATUWA. They did not have the opportunity to learn survival skills from their mother such as how to hunt and how to mark territory. They have been raised surrounded by humans and this leaves them vulnerable and unable to survive in the wild. They have no other option and must stay in captivity.


    These felines will be Ambassadors for an environmental education program that involves schools and the general public. The main objective is to generate information so that visitors understand the vital role that animals play in the forest ecosystem.

You will see the mares and their offspring, the hacienda carriage, the stallion, the long pole and the “equestrian fantasy”, a synchronized choreography of the mares.


    Every act will be presented and explained by the expert while you also enjoy the sounds of the Spanish flamenco music in a spectacular amphitheater.


    Your last stop will be at El Jardin souvenir market in Orotina where you will have plenty opportunity to browse around the shop, sample their delicious fruits or taste a Costa Rican cup of coffee.
