Day 1
Welcome to Costa Rica

On the first day of your tour, you will be picked up at the airport by Caribe Shuttle and driven to the small, beachside town of Puerto Viejo. After arriving in the early evening, you will get an opportunity to meet the rest of your tour group, enjoy some of Puerto Viejo’s amazing, international cuisine and bond with your fellow travelers over dinner and drinks. Then it’s early to bed for a good night’s sleep after a long travel day!

Day 2
Wake up to a beautiful Caribbean sunrise 🙂

… and enjoy a healthy, tropical breakfast and some inspiration/intention-setting time. On your first morning in Puerto Viejo, you will get a chance to enjoy the sunshine beginning with a brief beach yoga session followed by surf a surf lesson taught by one of Puerto’s many world-class surf instructors. You are guaranteed to have a great time! For those of you chicas who have experience surfing, take this time to go rip and enjoy the waves. Lunch to follow, where you will get an overview of the history of Puerto Viejo and of the tour’s community projects, including the one that you and your group will be taking part in. In the afternoon, zen out with a yoga session (you just might spot a sloth at OM’s outdoor studio), followed by dinner on your own.

Day 3
Another healthy breakfast and meditation session to start the day.

followed by a volunteer session where we will assemble donation bags for an under-funded children’s center in the community. Now, it’s back to the beach to catch some waves or go for a swim. In the afternoon, enjoy some individual time browsing the town’s local markets, basking in the sun, or observing howler monkeys on a walk through the jungle. Sunset yoga on the beach offers a relaxing way to end the day before heading out to happy hour and dinner.

Day 4
Day four starts with another morning of karmic goodness.

We will begin the day by taking our assembled donation bags to CEN-CINAI, the children’s center, and get to know the special kids that the bags will benefit. After, we will spend some time meeting the owners of other local businesses as we let them know of our planned beach-clean up in the upcoming days. From there, enjoy a picnic on the beach with music and hula hooping, followed by an afternoon of (depending on the ocean) paddle boarding or a fun surf session.

Day 5
After breakfast and a delightful yoga session, we will embark on our 3-in-1 tour, starting with the Jaguar Rescue Center.

See baby monkeys, exotic birds, and more at this well-respected animal refuge. After, we will embark on a chocolate tour complete with a mountaintop chocolate tasting then a trip to the Bribri waterfalls. Upon our return, we will do some light prepping for the next day’s beach cleanup followed by dinner on your own.

Day 6
Leaving behind a positive footprint in the local community isn't just something we preach, it's something we truly practice.

On the sixth day of the tour, we will dedicate our morning (after a surf session) to a group beach cleanup with members of the local community to show our gratitude to the community and Mother Earth. After, we will celebrate with fresh fruit and pipas with everyone who pitched in followed by lunch and free time. End the afternoon right with a relaxing massage or body treatment of your choice at Pure Jungle Spa.
