My husband and I are looking to travel to Costa Rica for one week. We want to be within walking distance to a beautiful swimable beach with decent snorkeling, maybe kayaking too but still be close to all the jungle wildlife for photography. With only one week we don't want to do a bunch of traveling and driving. Looking for a relaxing week away. Here are a few of my questions:
What part of Costa Rica should we travel to? Is there somewhere that has beautiful white sand beaches, clear blue water near the wildlife of the jungles?
Any suggestions on where to stay? We're not planning to rent a car so somewhere that has a great restaurant and some restaurants and things to do nearby as well.
We are somewhat flexible on our timing. What month in Spring to early summer do you recommend for the best weather and rates? We were thinking mid April?
Thanks a bunch!
