I'm definitely going to be in Costa Rica again this summer. Flights confirmed, yayyyyyy! I will be learning Spanish Mon-Fri but have weekends to travel.
My questions are
1) I know there are some manatees in Costa Rica, but has anyone got any recommendations of the best places to see them? Are there any specific animal groups working with manatees? I'm really interested in them, but I'm not sure how common the sightings are...
2) Best place to see bats?
3) Any ideas for things that are less touristy and more of the real Costa Rica. I want to improve my Spanish, so don't want to be surrounded by english-speaking people all/ any of the time! I'm staying with Costa Ricans in the middle of the country, so easy to get anywhere. I'm a biologist, so particularly into wildlife if that helps!
Thanks for any advice you may have! I'm so excited and I'd really appreciate any input so I can start planning properly.
Muchas gracias :-)
