Sol Papagayo- Things to do

Our family of 6 is going to CR Dec 24-31. I want to pre-book things to do and need advise on how to best spend our short time there. Also need some names of good tour guides. This is the first trip all our family has taken together so I want it to be a great experience. Ages are from 50 to 20.

You might check with Papagayo Vargas Tours. They are highly recommended and have a good variety of things to do.

There are four National Parks you can visit for day trips: Rincon de la Vieja, Miravalles, Tenorio and Palo Verde. All are two hours or less from the Sol Papagayo. Look here for more information: www.costarica-nationalparks.com

We have had people on the boat talk about the Palo Verde Tour with Mainor Lara and they have RAVED about it. www.tours-your-way.com

Also have heard from clients great experiences on the Rincon de la Vieja tour with Avispas Adventures.

They are both listed here on TripAdvisor under Things To Do in the area.

Good luck!
