Departure Time

6:00 AM
Prepare for an early morning pickup at your La Cruz hotel to make the most of the day, and enjoy the passing scenery on the roughly 3-hour drive to reach the Blue River Resort & Hot Springs. When you arrive, sip a welcome cocktail at the spa and make use of changing rooms to prepare for your eco hike.

Take another short drive to reach a private park along the Rio Pénjamo, also known as the Blue River thanks to its rich, mineral-infused hue. Hike along lush rain forest trails that wind past creeks and several different waterfalls, where you can cool off with a dip in natural pools at the base.

After the hike, replenish your energy with lunch back at the resort, followed by several hours of leisure time to unwind in true Costa Rican style. Soak away your cares in natural volcanic hot springs, splash into a freshwater pool via a bullet water slide, or take a mineral mud bath alongside a river. For an extra dose of pampering, you can purchase a treatment from the resort’s full-service spa.

You can also stroll through tropical botanical gardens blooming with more than 700 plant species, see winged wonders at the butterfly and hummingbird gardens, spot reptiles at the caiman and turtle lagoons, or visit the resort’s resident miniature horses and donkeys. Around 4 pm, collect your belongings and relax on the return drive to your hotel.
