Wow! There are so many places I feel like I need to see during my first trip to Costa Rica. Unfortunately, we only have 6 days and don't want to spend the entire time driving. Any advice on the best area for a home base to get us a bit of beach and rainforest? We're a laid-back crowd of 8 friends, celebrating a 30th birthday and definitely want the adventures of fishing, surfing lessons, canopy tour, horseback riding and hiking. Plus, a little R&R... We're an off-the-beaten-path group, but want the luxury and are willing to spend for it. Right now it's either Arenal Volcano area 3 days + Nicoya Beach town for 3 days or straight to Manuel Antonio or Domincal for the entire trip. Any help is appreciated!!!!
