Wondering if any of our Isla contributors have been to both?
Costa Rica sounds wonderful with possibility of white sandy beaches and a jungle setting with lots of colorful birds, monkies etc.
However it would likely take a full day to get from Boston to San jose and then a four or five hour drive or transfer.
Isla on the other hand is less than a four hour flight from boston and perhaps a little over an hour to transfer. Isla may lack the wildlife of Costa Rica, but the restaurants are fantastic and that section of the beach on adjacent to Sergio's is heaven. It's a tough choice!
PS I would be most interested in the perspective of people who have actually visited both.Edited: 03 July 2010, 04:58
