My husband and I were there 20 yrs ago, and are returning in December.
Here is the idea I have:
go from SJO to San Gerardo de Dota for birding--stay 2 nites
from there to Drake Bay (Corcovado, Cano Island, etc.)--stay 3-4 nites
airplane from Drake area back to San Jose--do an overnite trip of 2 days to Tortuguero
Does this sound doable?
I was ready to rent a car--we have driven in New Zealand, Italy, France, Caribbean--but I am a bit worried about all of the talk about the tire-slashing in CR. This is rather dissuading me form car rental. My husband and i are seniors and we certainly would be identified as tourists. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO........the other option in shuttles or buses, i guess--between SJ and San Gerardo and then San Gerardo and Drake. Can anyone make a recommendation on this transportation?
thanks a bunch
