Can someone help?

We are going to Tamarindo. We are with 2 person.

and would like to do some excursions. We would like to do a 2day excursion and then maybe 3 one day excursions. We love everything with nature (Is the Arenal Volcano & Hot Springs possible for 2 days?) one day seems to long for us. we would also like a day to visit a market and/or a nice town (GUAITIL ? ). Can someone give us some ideas. We are really not looking for Adventure trips. We would surely like to do the Masaya Volcano National Park ~ Granada, Nicaragua 1Day Tour

What would the prices be like in US $ ??

Arenal do it in 2 days it is really too long of a tour to do it in one day (Over 4 hours drive each way). For Guatil most companies do a day trip that includes the Boat Tour at the Palo Verde National Parks and a visit to the Guaitil pottery. I have heard about the Granada-Masaya for 1 day being a long tour and very nice. Another Excusion is the Heliconias Rain Forest and Suspended bridges tour.

Around Tamarindo are incredible beaches, some are nice and deserted and a great way to see lots of wildlife. I just went to a beach called Pirate's Bay where you can walk out to a rock where the legend says Captain Morgan hid his rum.

So when you are not out doing an excursion, plenty to see right near Tamarindo. Often, these quiet walks on the beach is when I see some of the most incredible things in Costa Rica.
