My wife & I are planning a trip to CR in Jan. 2012. Seeking input for places to stay in the following locations.
1. San Jose---we are looking at the Adventure Inn for 2 nights after we first arrive. Will rent a car through Adventure Inn. Will possibly see local volcanoes & tour San Jose.
2. From San Jose we plan to drive to Hotel Vista Golfo in Puntarenas for 2 nights to do zip line, horseback riding.
3. Then we travel to Arenal volcano area in La Fortuna for 2 nights. 4. Next we drive to Manuel Antonio Beach for 3 nights.
5. Last night we return to Adventure Inn in San Jose for flight next day.
Would appreciate any comments regarding hotels/motels in $100-
$150 price range for the areas we've listed above.
Our plan includes the rain forest at Vista Golfo, the volcanoes at Arenal, the beach at Manuel Antonio ( which we hear is the prettiest) and the capital.
Are there any other "not to be missed" sites or activities which we need to include? We are seeking comments & advice. Is this a doable plan? This will be our first trip to CR.
