Suggestions for travel to CR in January 2015

We will be honeymooning in CR for 9 days in early January 2015. We are thinking of staying in Uvita at Rancho Pacifico for half of our stay but need advice on another area to visit for the second half. We plan on doing adventures in the Uvita area. Any suggestions are appreciated!!!

Budget? Priorities? Must haves? Dealbreakers?

Lots of possibilities. Something in the same general region that compliments Rancho Pacifico well is Monte Azul.

Alternately, I'd say first choose a region/ecosystem/adventure: i.e. more coastal/beach; volcano, cloud forest, white water rafting (the Pacuare Lodge also compliments Rancho Pacifico well); for a honeymoon a night or two at start or end at Finca Rosa Blanca or Xandari or Grano de Oro would be good.

Thanks, Eliot. I'm looking into your suggestions. Assuming we go inland to Monte Azul or Finca Rosa Blanca for the end of our trip, we would need to fly out of SJO?

For those places, yes. San Jose is also the airport you would want for Rancho Pacifico.

Pretty much anywhere you would pair with a stay near Uvita would mean a flight out of SJO unless you do domestic flights.

Other options to look at include Rio Magnolia just north of Dominical or more highland-sh places in San Gerardo de Dota area--such as Dantica Lodge.

Yes, for Uvita and the south, SJO is your best airport. Finca Rosa Blanca is only 20-30 minutes from the airport and makes a great first or last stop.

A lot nice places to stay around SJO…if you look for a nice place around 20 minutes range…check XANDARY…lovely place…

Just in case around UVITA another lovely place Tikivillas…incredible relax…and great views…just a few units...

Please report any soliciting by PM…some not very nice people are basically attacking people to get reservations…
