We are thinking about going to Costa Rica this winter to escape the Canadian cold a bit. We are looking at mid-January. I've been looking at different spots in Costa Rica and can't quite decide. We aren't fans of all-inclusive resorts and really produced tourist places. We'd prefer to experience more of the real Costa Rica. We would probably stay in a B&B or apartment instead of a large resort. We will be travelling with our toddler and my mom (early 60s). We'll only have a short stay (7-10 days). We'd really like to experience some rainforest and see some wildlife...my husband loves monkeys, haha. Any recommendations for a good spot? My husband is fluent in Spanish and I have a working knowledge. I know this is kind of a general question, but I always find advice from the forums more helpful then browsing the web. Thanks.
