My husband and me plan to visit Costa Rica (our first time!) between December 20-25, 2012, spending about three days at Arenal and two days at Manual Antonio. We enjoy lots of hiking, and were wondering if it would be better idea to have day-tour guides.
Would like to take some opinion from others who have travelled here before! If you do recommend tour-guides, do they need to be booked much in advance.., and do you have any suggestions for specific guides?
Thank you very much!
