My husband and I will be in Costa Rica for the first time in the end of August and we are trying to plan our trip so that we are not traveling the whole time. We are staying a total of nine days. We are starting off our trip in a resort in La Fortuna and staying for two days. After that, we were thinking of taking jeep-boat-jeep to Monteverde and stay for two days. After that we were thinking of going somewhere nice near the beach and the SJO airport that has great or semi-good surfing and pretty beaches for the last three days. Anyone have suggestions? Also from what i have read, I am a little scared to rent a vehicle in Costa Rica. Any good places where we can rent a car in La Fortuna and drop off at SJO?
