Hi We are adventurous, fun, (30 year old) singles planning a coed trip for four whom have never been to CR and don't typically travel to same local twice. Feb 25-March 7
We have 10 nights 11 days.
Night 1- San Jose (eat and drink)
Day & night 2&3- Early toward Monteverde and Arnel Mountain area. (Horseback, Hot springs, See Volcano and do some hiking around Monteverde, btw is there a coffee plant around here?)
Where should we stay? Looking for moderate hotel, B&B or boutique like hotel. Something unique with breakfast would be cool. Planning on two nights here while we visit these two spots Monteverde and Arnel Mountain area. Should we stay in La Fortuna or Santa Elena? Can we cab or bus to see volcano at night one day if we stay in St Elena vs. La Fortuna area?
Day 4&5 Head to Guancasta region. We want to take some surf lessons and see great beaches that have a fun enough night life but relax also and not be overrun with a touristy feel.
Thinking about two nights and days around Tamarindo or beaches around Playa Samara? If we are in a busier area around Tamarindo we would probably like our hotel or B&B to be more tranquil then.
Day 5&6 Head South Nicoya perhaps to MalPaiz or Montezuma area? Suggestions on cool places to stay similar to above description.
Day and Nights 7&8 Head to Manuel Antonio (Canopying here and Beach it too I think) -suggestions on places to stay here?
We have 1 more day or night to add somewhere, any suggestions on where to add a day?
Final Day 10 Back in San Jose go home day 11 :-(
Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated!
