Hi. I have heard so many wonderful things about Costa Rica. I just bought plane tickets for 2 arriving in 2 days for 8 days. Our friends told us to go to Pacure River rafting and that there is a great Lodge in the jungle there, then Manel Antonio for the beach and the Arenal Volcano area and Montverde Cloud Forest. I want to fly between those places to save time on the road. We are young and like good hotels. My wife wants a cooking class, we are all in for adventure and nature. Any good local companies or hotels you recommend. Thank you for your help. We are very exited and I will write a trip report upon our return.
