With so many things to do in CR and only one week to do them...
I was last there in 1995 and saw many nice places but now it is 2007 and I have a wife & 11 year old boy.
We would like a nice "blend" of activities but don't want to do too much considering the small amount of time.
We like really nice Hotels and are considering Tamarindo as a base because I thought there might be more activity there and I could get my son into a surfing camp.
Maybe from there we could take a day trip into a park to see the wonderful nature in CR.
Can someone give us advice on a really nice Hotel in Tamarindo or maybe tell me a better place to do a beach & nature combo?
