A Crystalline Light Tour
9 days/8 nights
DAY ONE, Date TBD:
You will depart from your home country with a passport, arriving at Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Costa Rica is an oasis of calm with the highest standard of living in Central America. Peace is the national treasure in Costa Rica, which means “rich coast.” Just 5-10 minutes from the airport, you will arrive by shuttle to the Hotel La Riviera Bed & Breakfast*. At 7:00 pm you will join the tour group for orientation and receive your personal Vision Journal. For dinner, the best of National and International cuisine will be available to you (check out the menu at http://www.costaricalarivierahotel.com). You can then unwind and relax in the pool or lounge.
DAY TWO, Date TBD:
Enjoy a healthy breakfast to begin your first full day in Costa Rica. Travel by our private 13-passenger microbus to northwestern Costa Rica, a 4-hour visual delight through the lush countryside. The road less traveled is famed for the scenic beauty that just keeps on coming. We will stop along the way for lunch. Arriving at our destination “home” The Red Sunset of Guanacaste*(www.redsunsetcr.com/), overlooking Lake Arenal, the largest lake in Costa Rica. You’ll benefit from the unique and powerful electro-magnetic energy in the area, with distant views of the most active volcano in Central America and possible UFO sightings from nearby Lake Cote. You will get settled in and take some relaxing rest time before we head out to see some of the beautiful surrounding area. Later we will go into town for some supplies and dinner. Once back at “The Sunset”, we will share our insights and feelings as a group. Then you will take some quiet time for yourself to write in your Vision Journal. Next…sleep!
DAY THREE, Date TBD:
Enjoy a healthy breakfast. Here at the "The Red Sunset” a hearty breakfast includes fresh fruit, coffee, juice, fried potatoes, ham, bacon or sausage, eggs al gusto, and some sort of homemade daily bread such as banana pancakes, blintzes, waffles, crepes, stuffed French toast. Breakfasts can be tailored to meet any dietary need or restriction including Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten free, etc. After breakfast we will head out to touch on the ACLF Vision and Mission while we walk and explore the Aguacate Learning Center Community property and the Arenal Healing Center Community property with a picnic lunch on the property or the local nearby park. We go back to our “home away from home” to clean up, rest, or take a swim. Then, off we go to explore more of the beautiful area. We will get some dinner and then go back home to share some of our insights. The long exciting day is coming to a close so you can take some quiet time to write in your Vision Journal.
DAY FOUR, Date TBD:
Say “Sky Adventure” and we are off on a rainforest extravaganza! Today, after an early breakfast, we head towards La Fortuna and a day of beauty and excitement. We will be doing the Sky Tram, Sky Trek and Sky Walk tour. The slow-paced Sky Tram gondolas soar smoothly through the rain forest, offering up endless views during their mountainous ascent to the highest point in the Arenal Reserve. You can return by Sky Tram or take the more adventurous route back which is to zip your way to the bottom along the fast moving Sky Trek canopy tour zip lines, the best option for those seeking a rush of adrenalin! We will also be taking a leisurely Sky Walk tour. Sky Walk offers visitors yet another opportunity to get a perspective on the dynamic rainforest at a much slower pace; here you can enjoy two amazing waterfalls, and a stunning cantilever platform 30 meters high with spectacular views of the forest, volcano and lake. So bring your camera and maybe some binoculars! After our day of adventure we head for a relaxing evening to soak in nearby hot springs and to enjoy a fine dinner.
Then back home to “The Red Sunset”, ready for a good nights sleep after adding to your Vision Journal.
DAY FIVE, Date TBD:
This will be a free day to do anything you want. Maybe relax in the house, dip in the pool or Jacuzzi, read, walk, or the group can choose an optional tour or activity for all. (See “Fun Things to do at Lake Arenal” for ideas.) This might be a good day to explore more of the area. Other group activities are always a possibility like storytelling or yoga. A restful evening brings another opportunity for everyone to share thoughts from the day’s experiences. Then a little quiet time is called for so you can add to your Vision Journal.
DAY SIX, Date TBD:
After a healthy, hearty breakfast we will be visiting an organic sustainable farm for a unique experience of living in harmony with nature as they share their expertise in biodynamic and organic production. After an organic lunch it is “anchors away” for a boat tour on beautiful Lake Arenal! Later we arrive at home base for a fine dinner and group time for sharing our thoughts and insights. Another exciting day is coming to a close and you will need some quiet time to write in your Vision Journal.
DAY SEVEN, Date TBD:
This will be another free day to do anything you want. Enjoy a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi, read, walk, or the group can choose another optional activity. (See “Fun Things to do at Lake Arenal”) for ideas. This might be a good day to continue your exploration of the area and do some souvenir shopping. Other popular group activities are still a possibility like storytelling or yoga. A peaceful evening brings another opportunity for everyone to share thoughts from the day’s experiences. Then more quiet time is called for so you can add to your Vision Journal.
DAY EIGHT, Date TBD:
You will have another healthy breakfast before getting ready to say “good bye” to Patrick, our gracious host, and “The Red Sunset”. Finally, with packed bags in hand, it will be time to go back through miles of breathtaking scenic views of the Costa Rican countryside. We will stop along the way for lunch. Soon we will arrive at the Hotel La Riviera** for our last night. It is time to relax, share our thoughts and have a nice dinner. Sweet dreams!
DAY NINE, Date TBD:
Rise early for a healthy breakfast. Pack your bags, secure your mementos and souvenirs. The La Riviera shuttle will drive you to the airport. Safe Journeys! Please stay in touch!Exclusions and Travel Tips Page
