I am planning a very last minute trip and will spend the later part of the week at Corcovado NP. Prior to flying to Puerto Jimenez, I want to spend 3 days in central Costa Rica area near SJO. Should I go to Arenal? I have a rental 4x4 so I am willing to drive anywhere around 3 hours. Maybe stopping by some little towns? I will be in San Jose this week!
Likes: Non-tourist areas but I know its hard to avoid. Love beaches, hiking, fishing, and photography.
I will have my fishing pole and would love to fish off the beach, hopefully meeting locals. Not sure if its worth finding any nice beaches near SJ. I only want to do light hikes as I will be doing most of my hiking in Corcovado.
*I need to relax and not be reminded of work.
