Two weeks in Costa Rica in May!

Hello!

My fiancée and I are thinking of going on our honeymoon to Costa Rica. We are considering going for two weeks in the first part of May (2014). Does anyone have any insight on how the weather is there during this time generally? We read online that this is technically the start of the rainy season, but that it should still be ok during this time.

As well, any tips on places that are 'must-sees' are welcome =) We would fly into San Jose; no concrete plans from there yet. We'd probably look for a mix of active (hiking, water sports etc) and lazy (beaches!) activities!

Thanks!!

For two weeks, you could spend a week at the beach and a week at a mountain/volcano location - or - visit as many as 5 or 6 locations, depending on what you are looking for and how much you are willing to move around.

Suggesting itineraries and places to stay could be a very very long post that would take a lot of time. You seriously need to narrow down your choices and then we can help you with recommendations and lodging choices.

This will help: www.anywherecostarica.com which is a very good site for general information about various areas of the country. Also www.costa-rica-guide.com

This will give you distances and travel times: www.yourtravelmap.com

The Arenal area and the southern Caribbean coast (Puerto Viejo area) would be a good combination for a week in each location. Lots to do and some good "relaxing" time possible.

Otherwise, there's a world of opportunity.
