Last Minute Trip-3/2-3/8; Need Location Suggestions

Hi,

My boyfriend and I are booking a spontaneous trip to C.R. tonight and figuring out our specific destinations afterwards :).

I've traveled through the country before but he has not and I would love to see it all but it's look like we must condense and make the most of our 8 days there.

We both love places that are off the beaten track, hidden gems if you will. We've looked at Montezuma and Dominical thus far, does anyone else have any recommendations of locations to stop along the way or a completely different suggestion of where to go?

Clearly we aren't set on anything yet and are completely open to suggestion! A tour of the rainforest, volcano, beach would be lovely but I know it's hard to fit it all in. We just warm, sunny and fun!

If you want to go somewhere that there's more animals than people head to the Osa Penninsula-it's incredible! You could go there for 3 nights and then head to Dominical for a few days-make sure to go to Manuel Atonio national park at least one time when you're in that area. :-)

Thank you for the suggestion! Do you think there's another area we should concentrate on or would this be a nice unique area to visit? Do we need a guided tour or can we putter around on our own :) ?

Thank you again!
