We stayed in Costa Rica in September 2013 and travelled from Tortuguero on the Caribean coast to Drake bay in the south at the pacific coast. Visiting in between several National Parks. We traveled by car and by boat which was a great thing to do. The rainy season implied that we occasionally had a shower in the afternoon. Because it was low season the crowds were not there and staffs had full attention for us which was really an advantage. We did not stay in San Jose and by doing that we did not miss a lot. The Tico's are the most kindly people we ever met on our trips and we have never felt unsafe anywhere in Costa Rica. Pura Vida !
