My husband and I are travelling to Costa Rica for 10 days... we are going to spend 4 nights at La Pradera near Arenal and 6 nights in Puerto Viejo. We are going between Christmas & New Years... so it will be crowded and we want to try and book as much as possible ahead of time...
So here's my question - what are the best things to do - and should we just sign up for tours through our hotel - or are some tours better than others?? here's what we're considering.... we'd love some advice:
-La Fortuna waterfall tour
-Rio Celeste tour
-Arenal canopy tour (should we do a canopy tour in Puerto Viejo instead?)
-rafting (what river would be the best for beginners? should we save this for Puerto Viejo?)
We would really appreciate your advice!!
