Costa Rica in a Day? Go Coast to Coast the Cayuga Way

What if you could experience the essence of Costa Rica in a day? Just think, how memorable would it be to soak up two different cultures across two different coasts in the space of 12 hours? You could catch a sunrise on the golden shores of the Caribbean Sea. Spend a morning peddling along the palm-shaded coastal road to Puerto Viejo. You could enjoy your fill of fresh whole fish with coconut rice and beans too – and do it all by midday, right on time for your private helicopter charter over to the Pacific. Now that’s an adventure in itself.

Fly by private helicopter charter from Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast to its Pacific and experience them both in a day

Imagine flying over the iconic rainforests of Costa Rica, taking in the awe-inspiring vastness of it all on the speedy journey that whisks you from the turquoise Caribbean to the jade Pacific in a matter of minutes. You’d make it to the wild tropics on the other side of Central America by afternoon, in time to catch a famous Pacific wave or two and a dramatic sunset over the ocean from high in the rainforested hills. Wouldn’t that be a day well spent?

Now let’s make it happen.

The Cayuga Coast-to-Coast Adventure starts at Hotel Aguas Claras in Puerto Viejo. Our newest Collection member and the first ever Cayuga hotel on the Caribbean Coast, we’re proud to bring sustainable luxury to the other side of Costa Rica and even more excited to finally connect the country the Cayuga Way.

Here you can look forward to an authentic taste of the Caribbean at its most colorful and charming before flying over to the Pacific.

Perfectly paired with Hotel Aguas Claras is Kurà, our ultra-boutique, uber-romantic resort perched in the Uvita mountains.
