1st timers to Costa Rica Most likely fly out of JFK,NYC

any ideas would be greatly appreciated. My husband and I 49 & 50 y.o. beach, sun, snorkeling, food, no driving (don't want the hassle) have about 8 days; some adventure and eco tours, and may look to stay on the safe beachy side? Thank you for any ideas.

We're off to Manuel Antonio in Feb but can't get into La Posada for all the 4 nights we're there. Is there anywhere equally good and walking distance to La Posada?

Thanks in advance

Don't know where you are located but we always take Continental straight through from Newark. It is very easy. Also, we always use the same tour company/driver in Costa Rica to pick us up from the airport. They are odyssey tours. They are two brothers that are wonderful. If you are interested in them you can check out their website. It is www.odysseytourscr.com. Have fun!

You might also consider flying out of Newark with Continental for the direct flight to Liberia. This will bring you to withing 1 hours drive of many of the north Pacific beaches such as Tamarindo, Grande, Conchal, Flamingo.

Maybe I am biased, but Manuel Antonio still is my favorite area. Tons of tours to choose from, great restaurants and spas and the park and surrounding beaches are beautiful. If you want to see monkeys and other wildlife, this is the place to be! Enjoy!
