Heading to CR for 16 days in February with my boyfriend-- can't wait!
Trying to do it affordably (but without sleeping on separate beds; ), with activities/adventure, but with a lot of good R&R time.
Check out my idea and let me know! we're renting a 4x 4 the whole time and hope to keep it SOMEWHAT loose, but i need a framework:
Flying into San Jose, out of Liberia.
Plan so far -- feel free to add your input!
- Monteverde SOUNDS magical, many have recommended... worth seeing/zip lining...but is it really worth taking away time on the coast?
- Manuel Antonio - given i'm trying mostly to make our way to montezuma/mal pais to really chill out, but have heard great things about MA: how many nights would you spend in Manuel Antonio/Quepos (any affordable reccommendations?)
- then en route over to the Nicoyan tip, drive to Jaco and spend a night, maybe to party for a night as i hear it's quite lively, and eat at the treetop restaurant. Any need to stay longer??
Ferry to Montezuma - sounds like my heaven on earth, can't wait. Snorkelling at Turtuga, the falls, just BEING in montezuma is the plan.
BUT, i look forward to some surf lessons in Mal Pais, and instead of commuting, figure maybe a few days in Montezuma and a few days in Mal Pais? How many days would you spend in each (keeping in mind we have to drag our butts up to liberia end eventually)
THEN - say goodbye to the tip, Long (and occasionally trecherous i hear) drive up coast, maybe stay in Samara...make way up to Liberia area
ANy help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
