Costa Rica Adventure 11-26 August

Postby loesv » Thu Jul 24, 2014 3:46 pm

Hi there,
Anyone else over here who is going on the Costa Rica Adventure - trip from 11 until 26 of August?
I am a single traveller from The Netherlands and will arrive in San Jose on the 10th of August. I'd love to hear it when other people are arriving earlier as well and want to do some sightseeing together.
So looking forward to the trip! :)
Bests,
Loes

I did this trip in February and just wanted to give a few tips:

San Jose if you have a whole free day a nice excursion is a tour to Volcan Poas and La Paz waterfall gardens (my tour also included a visit to a coffee plantation). That tour should be bookable from your hotel, book it one day before.

I did some walking about in San José but the city didn't really have anything to offer. It seemed dangerous to walk around (lack of zebra crossings in some parts). I would not walk around alone esp. after dark.

When you get to Puerto Viejo if you do the Manzanillo rainforest tour ask if you can get Ricky as your guide!
