My wife, daughter and I will be traveling to Costa Rica for the first time. We will be going in October and staying in Puntarena (where the cruises come in) for 11 days. We plan to travel up to the volcano and to the rainforest. Is there anything worth seeing in Puntarena? What is the easiest way to travel from Puntarena to other locations. Are there any really good maps to get?
From reading some of the posts we have learned that it will be very wet during that time (bring poncho), not to bring jeans, bring bug spray. We have never been to a rain forest. I would like to try surf fishing once or twice.
I would greatly appreciate as much help/tips as possible
