We are leaving for our first trip to costa rica in about 5 weeks. We are staying at the Westin Playa and I was wondering what the r/t cost is for 2 people? My travel agent is quoting me $168 r/t for a shared ride. Can I do better on my own?
I have a few additional questions, if you guys don't mind ....
How much is a taxi to Tamarindo?
Any restaurant recommendations? (we prefer non-touristy places with authentic cuisine)
Is there a store in Tamarindo to buy locally made cigars?
Are there any craft/souvenir items I should buy?
And lastly ...tours
I'm sort of confused as to what there is to do/see at the volcano (the closer one ). If it's going to be a billion degrees, I certainly don't want to do any strenuous activities (like hiking long distances ). I'm not exactly the athletic type to begin with. :-)
What about tubing in the river...is that close by?
we'd like to do the boat ride. And we really like ziplining as well (tho I've been places where one has quite a trek to the zipline ).
We are considering a half day fishing trip, but so far the prices ice seen are rather steep.
Thank you all in advance ...
