We are traveling to Costa Rica for two weeks on a (reasonable) budget, and want to include a visit to Corcovado, and are having trouble deciding where to stay, in Puerto Jimenez (at the Costa Rica Expeditions Lodge) or Drake Bay. Is one region better over another? We absolutely want to do a Corcovado hike, and from what I understand either of these places are situated well for that.
Also, after Corcovado we want to round out our trip with a few days at Manuel Antonio. Can anyone recommend bus or ground transport options between these two places, and an approximate cost for us to expect.
