We are planning our first trip to Costa Rica this March. We are flying into San Jose and had originally planned on 3 nights there, but after reading other peoples comments on San Jose I'm starting to think this is too long.
I think Tortuega is too far for one day/night, especially as we are driving to Arenal after that.
So we were curious about Sarapiqui. I was wondering if it was worth an overnight or just a day trip.
The options I was looking at are either a tour from SJ to cinco ceibas rainforest reserve & adventure park ($99/pp)
Or driving to Selva Verde and staying at the lodge there which looks like it has a lot of grounds and tours to itself
Any feed back on these places would be greatly appreciated.
