We our in our late 20's and will be traveling to Costa Rica in May. We will be leaving our 15 month old at home and looking to have a relaxing time, yet see some of the sites in Costa Rica. We are considering going to St. Teresa for the entire vacation and either renting a car from San Jose or flying to Tambor and taking a taxi to St. Teresa.
Is there enough wildlife and other things to see in st. Teresa or should we spend a few days in one of these places: Arenal, Manuel Antonio or Monteverde?
We aren't into group tours, "touristy" areas or resorts. Our budget is around $2000 for the 8 days.
