3 days left to plan in a 10 day itenary - suggestions please

Hi All:

We are doing a last minute vacation to Costa Rica Dec 21 to Dec 31.

Here is the itinerary we have till now, all booked:

land on 21; 22-23: Arenal; 24-25 Montaverde; 25-26 quepos

27 maybe spend some more time on the beaches.

so we have 28, 29, 30 and half of 31 left.

We have a filght to catch on the 31 evening at 5:00 pm.

We wanted to include a rafting trip, and were considering Pecuare.

Can we do this and a trip to Tortuego?

Or as someone suggested on the forum earlier, shd we just do a rafting trip on Rio on the way to Arenal?

How does rafting on Rio compare to Pecuare?

Are there any other itenary suggestions for the last 3 days. We are willing to spend some money, to have a slightly luxury travel as we have saved on the first 8 days :)

Thank you very much,

Madhu.

What are you planning to see in Quepos? meanwhile the next town where the park is Manuel Antonio has many beaches to choose from .

Even though you are booked you may want to add a night to Arenal and one to Monteverde.

Rio & Pacuare one and the same.

Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

Changing the days of stay is not a possibility now, as we are traveling in a grp. The rest of our grp return on the 28, we have a few extra days.

I meant the river "El Toro". Heard this is on the way to Arenal.

sorry abt the confusion.

Wanted to know how it compares to Pecuare.

Will be visiting Manuel San Antonio, just that we are staying at quepos as that is where we could fine accommodation.

Thanks again,

Madhu.

Hi, sorry I don't know much about rafting in this area-but you may find that your accommodation options are limited for these dates. Maybe worthwhile seeing what is still available, and planning around that.

You might consider flying down to Drake for a few days and staying in one of the lodges.
