Hi, My husband and I are going to CR for the 1st time in Jan-Feb 2007 for 12 days. Our emphasis is flora and fauna but we want adventure too. Here is our very tentative itinerary:
Nite 1 Arrive, stay in SJ
Nites 2 - 3 Tortugeuro
Nites 4 - 5 Manzanillo Beach
Nites 6 - 8 Monteverde
Nites 9-11 Manuel Antonio
Nite 12 SJ, for early departure
After reading comments here, I think I may want to change this somewhat. My guide books are general and don't talk about what is better at a particular time of year
Would Osa be better than Tortugeuro and Manzanillo? There won't be any nesting turtles at this time of year!! Is seeing the Caribbean really spectacular?
Also, would it be silly to miss Arenal when we'll be so close? But we've seen lava flows in Hawaii.
Thanks for any advice you may have!
