Important Information About This Trip
Note that during your beach extension you will not have a guide or driver. You are completely free to relax at the beach or arrange any number of local activities on your own. Available amenities include white-sand beaches, swimming pool and plenty of nearby shops and restaurants. Local suppliers offer hiking, fishing, bicycle rental, sea kayaking, snorkeling, diving, surfing, canopy tours and other programs, each at an additional fee. There are no activities included in the extension cost.
Since the areas we travel to on this extension are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat’s medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays, to lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation or comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer through Travelex by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Travelers who join our beach extension will depart from Arenal on Day 6 of the Family Costa Rica Adventure itinerary and travel by road to the coast. This extension includes 3 nights at the beach.
On the final day of your beach extension, you will be transferred by land to the Liberia Airport (approximately 1.5 hours drive) in time to connect with your departing flight. Please book flights out of Liberia for AFTER 11 AM on the final day to allow for the drive and all international check-in procedures.
Alternatively, if you prefer to depart from San José at the conclusion of your beach extension, additional fees will apply for either the 5-hour ground transfer to San José or the domestic flight from Tamarindo to San José to connect with flights home. With either option, please ensure your flight departs after 4 pm on the final day of your extension, to allow adequate time for travel and check-in procedures.
