Everything You Need to Know

Itinerary

Some more information about what we’re doing and where we’re going.


Day 1

  • 9pm Meet and Greet Cocktail Reception followed by dinner.

Day 2

  • After breakfast we’ll go back to the airport, but to the domestic terminal this time for the short flight to Tambor.
  • Dinner at the Hotel Vista Las Islas in Paquera, followed by a concert, open bar and snacks.

Day 3

  • A surprise! But it involves boats and fantastic food.
  • Concert in the evening with open bar and dinner.

Day 4

  • After breakfast it will be "excursion day". There are zip lines, waterfalls, nature reserves, Tortuga Island to name just a few of the choices.
  • An evening concert and dinner to remember.
  • Open bar and snacks

Day 5

  • Today is the day when you get to see even more of Costa Rica, but this time from the ground. A chartered coach will take us back to San Jose. On the way, we take a ferry across the Bay of Nicoya. The ferry takes about an hour and provides wonderful views of the bay. After that it's lunch and one of the unmissable features of Costa Rica - a crocodile-infested river cruise (that's the river, not the cruise that is crococile infested!). Then on to San Jose and back to our San Jose hotel.
    We’ll finish the trip with a sit-down dinner and short concert.

Day 6

  • Breakfast at the hotel and then taxis back to the airport.

Accommodations

We will be staying in San Jose within easy distance of the airport for the first and last nights.


Hotel Vista Las Islas

  • High up a mountain accessible only via a dirt road this hotel is simply magical. Go look at the photos (link above) and see for yourself. Plus it has a great place for the music as well as a swim-up bar and even a pizza oven.

Packing Tips

Packing Tips for the Girls from Jima (and some for the guys too!)

  • Less is better- I know that’s hard for us girls! My suggestion is to pack carry-on luggage only. The domestic flight has very a strict weight limit of 30lbs per passenger.
  • Essentials:
    • Swim suit(s) / cover up.
    • CASUAL!!
    • Resort – It’s a regular resort hotel - sundress will work (if you are into those) or a little nicer shorts/shirt outfit. We are here two nights. The first night is the meet and greet and the last night we dine at the hotel.
    • Las Islas- shorts, tops, t-shirts comfortable wear, light sweater (can be in the low 60’s at night)
    • Water or closed toed shoes.
    • Flashlight – if you don’t use your phone at night for one, it will come in handy when finding your way back to the room.
    • Hat – ball cap, sun hat, etc.
    • Bring an umbrella. It's a RAIN forest!
    • Make up is not essential. You'll be in the pool, eating, drinking, sleeping or listening to music a lot!
    • Last but not least, don't forget your passports! If you need a passport, you can get them here. Standard service is 4-6 weeks but you can expedite it and get your passport in as little as 2 weeks.

Flights

Please wait until 4 months before departure to book your flight. While the cost does not include flights, we will try to negotiate a group rate if we have sufficient numbers coming in from the same place (e.g. Houston, DFW). Also, in the unlikely event that we have to cancel, some flight bookings may be non refundable.


If you are booking your flight independently, please try to get to SJO before 5pm on Day 1 so that you are in time for the meet and greet. We recommend avoiding the last flights of the day. If you want to come in the previous day, we can arrange accommodation at the Adventure Inn for you.


Dallas/Fort Worth

American fly direct from DFW to SJO just once a day in October. That is the only direct flight. At the time of writing the return fare quoted is $808. However, there are numerous other options which involve relatively easy plane changes, especially if you have only hand luggage. You might also look at flying out of Tyler on American and changing planes at DFW, which is significantly cheaper than just getting on the flight at DFW. At the time of writing, that return fare is $487.

Southwest go out of Love Field. It's an easy plane change in Houston and that fare is $526 right now. There are other options too, which include Avianca, Delta, United, Spirit, Air Canada and Aeromexico with fares starting at $459. See Skyscanner for those and for flights from other cities or countries.

What does it cost?

What does it cost for five days close up with artists of this calibre, all inclusive top shelf liquors and gourmet food with specially chartered planes, boats (no trains) and coaches in a hidden tropical paradise?

The answer is $2000 per person (plus Paypal fees if paying through Paypal) for double occupancy. The price is shown when you navigate to the book now page. It's a small group, by design and of necessity - this isn't a 15 story cruise ship nor is it the Riviera Maya with 1000+ room hotels. For that reason, we can't do singles discounts (but we'll try and match same gender singles if you'd like - email us).

Cancellation and Refund Policy: Full refund (apart from Paypal transaction fees) until 4 months before departure; 50% refund until 1 month before with a further 40% (total 90% excluding Paypal fees) if we resell your spot. Less than one month before: no refund unless we manage to resell your spot in which case you will get a 90% refund excluding Paypal fees. Places are fully transferable right up to departure.

What's included?

Once you land in San Jose all food, drink, hotels, concerts and local transportation is included from Sunday evening to Friday morning. Well, that's almost all. The exceptions are a) food and drink outside of what we provide (and we provide a lot but if you want something niche it can be hard to get in Costa Rica!), b) souvenir/personal shopping or c) activities outside of the group (e.g. excursions). Rock The Jungle starts with the meet and greet on the first evening, and ends with breakfast on Day 6.

Other Stuff

This trip is not suitable for wheel-chair/walker users. It is not an "active vacation", so you don't need to be particularly fit, but if you have hip or knee or other issues which prevent you from climbing 20 stairs, you're not going to enjoy it. For those who have been with us before on Rock The Yacht, this trip is not as physically demanding. Minimum age 21.


We will be in touch regarding any food allergies. Some severe food allergies may be impossible to cater for (Nuts, Shellfish). Gluten free isn't a problem.

If in doubt, please ask before booking.
