I've posted in the main CR forum, but I haven't had many replies.
I will be coming to CR the 2nd week in May (hope its not too rainy??!?!) and staying in Arenal at Arenal Nayara for 3 nights (Sat-Mon), then taking Nature Air to Quepos and doing 4 nights in Manuel Antonio.
MY husband and I are in our early 30's and have no children. We like to relax during the day at a great beach and pool (I love calm, clear caribbean water, but I know thats not CR), a great pool, and do a half day tour or two once or twice for the week of vacation (hiking, kayaking, rafting, sight seeing, etc.). At night, we like to cocktail and have a band or music to watch/listen to, play pool and have good dinners, maybe some sort of entertainment. Are there casinos anywhere?
Anyway, i'm stuck on these 3 hotels:
Arenas del Mar
Gaia ---there is no beach there, right?
Any advice for what you can see by us right now? Thank you!!!
