I just bought tickets to go to CR for a Weds-Sun in early Dec. I have been to Quepos & Arenal before and want to check out the Osa Peninsula. I am torn between Drake Bay, Golfito, and Puerto Jimenez, and want to book the internal flights ASAP.
What do you think is best for --
-- Seeing birds/wildlife from your hotel?
-- Access to good wildlife/nature activities (hiking, kayaking - not necessarily "extreme" sports because you can't really see anything when you're ziplining :-)
-- Something low-key but mildly social -- that is, maybe a couple of bars/restaurants within walking/cabbing distance. I love nature but also like my fellow humans :-)
Was sold on Pto. Jimenez until I read some TA posts saying it's not a great place to access Corcovado...which I'd alternately read was the best park. Of course I am sure this is all subjective.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
