My boyfriend and I went to Costa Rica last April and fell in love with the country. The places we thoroughly enjoyed were Poas, Arenal, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio. We hiked for hours looking for animals and also sat at our balcony most of our trip soaking in the nature, spotting animals and sounds of the jungle. We are looking for something similar to either go in January or April. A friend suggested Panama, what are your suggestions on some places to go to? He suggested Bocas del toro, is this the best place to start? We are not the sit at a resort and soak up the sun type of tourist. We are hoping to rent a car and explore. My boyfriend and I are nature lovers and like adventure. Any of your suggestions would be much appreciated as I dont know where to start. Thanks!!!!
