Hi everyone. I will be traveling to Costa Rica next month and need some suggestions on which city to stay. Looking for beaches, rafting, volcanos, and night life. Thanks much.

Beaches and rating...around Manuel Antonio National patk...about 3 hours by car from SJO...

Arenal volcano...about 3 hours by car from SJO..from Arenal to Manuel Antonio about 4 and half hours!

Night life...some in Manuel Antonio...none in Arenal..

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

If you're flying into San Jose, head to Arenal. You'll get rafting and volcanoes and lots of other activities in that area. Then head to Manuel Antonio for more nature, wildlife and beach fun, with plenty of nightlife.

If you're flying into Libieria, stick to Arenal and then head to Tamarindo instead of Manuel Antonio.

Hope this helps,
