Trip to Costarica

I am travelling to Costa Rica this week. I am travelling alone and plan to take bus everywhere. Also, I would prefer to be in forest and adventure sports(not too risky). Here is my intenerary,if you comment is it too much to cover in 7 days.

Day 1 - San Jose

Day 2 - Poas Volcano and Travel to Monterverde

Day 3&4 - Monteverde Cloud Forest

Day 5 afternoon reach Arenal Volcano

Day 6 & 7Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna

Day 8 - Playa Tamarindo

Day 9 Travel from Tamarindo to Liberia Airport

Few Questions :

1) Is it worth spending time going for Poas Volcano,as later I am going to Arenal Volcano ?

2) How is bus transportation between city ?

Any other link to adventure companies in Monteverde will be helpful.

Do you have any comments on going to Poas Volcano and Arenal volcano - Is it worth covering both?

No way is that schedule doable using the bus. I'd skip Poas entirely if you're not going to have a car to drive you up. Also, I'd choose between Arenal or Monterverde--not enough to do both plus Tamarindo. I'd probably skip Monteverde.

Hi Dhaval, please go to this site , www.visitcostarica.com/ict/paginas/home.asp… it is for the Tourist Board of Costa Rica and select in the drop down menu under Planning Your Visit - Bus Schedule. This has great info. It is in PDF format so that you may print it out.

You can also look at www.thebusschedule.com/cr/ -- not perfect but very comprehensive.
