Anyone have an opinion on Nicoya Peninsula vs. Pacific Beaches further south (Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Uvita, etc). I have 4 days to spend and originally was going to try and hit both, but now realize that will be way too much traveling time.
I am going with my boyfriend - neither of us are surfers and prefer more quaint, chill "local" places as opposed to the high end resorts. We are also more of snorkelers/hikers/etc than surfers and not interested in being in super touristy spots.
We are looking for beautiful, secluded beaches (I know - this is alot to ask!) and understand they will be different from the Caribbean.
Any help/advice you could pass on would be much appreciated!
