First trip to costa rica!

Hi, I'm leaving for our trip in two days, we will be staying at the springs resort for four nights and the flamingo for three nights. We haven't booked any excursions yet, can anyone recommend a day trip? Waterfalls, zip line, and hiking. We would love to see monkeys and sloths in the wild, will we be able to see them close to these resorts? Also thinking of a sunset catamaran tour, I have read good things about the lazy lizard. One more thing how's the weather, hot during the day cool at night, and rainy afternoons? So excited for our first trip to costa rica! Thanks for your help

You will have a blast here. I would check the following companies for tours.

In Arenal Desafio - http://www.desafiocostarica.com/

In Guanacaste Xplore - http://xplorecostarica.com/

A trip to Palo Verde is a nice relaxed way to spend a day, you will see a bunch of animals on that one. A trip out to Llano De Cortez Waterfall is another great way to spend the day in Guanacaste.

La Fortuna Waterfall or Rio Celeste falls in Arenal are both worth it IMO. I totally dig kayaking on Lake Arenal, not sure if that's your cup of tea or not but its a lot of fun.

More will chime in soon.

Cheers
