A must do recommendation near San Jose, Costa Rica? We already did rafting in Pacuare and Tortuguero expedition..... Thoughts???
We enjoyed Arenal! We were there for 2 days during our Costa Rica trip last summer, & really wish we could have spent more time in the area. It's beautiful and there are so many activities to do! over 8 years ago
We traveled in July. Though technically the "rainy" season, we only experienced showers in the late afternoon & very early morning, leaving plenty of time for actvities. (The rain was actually very nice) We noticed that our trip was MUCH more affordable than similar trips during the High Season! Arenal is definitely a must see!! It's beautiful with lots of activity options!! over 8 years ago
Is it a good idea to rent a car in San Jose and move from there to the other turistic places? I plan it to be our hub. Thanks.
I would encourage choosing 2 to 3 areas of the country to visit and utilize a service, such as Interbus, for transportation to your destination. Traffic patterns, driving styles and the lack of road signs can make driving in the country a bit tense. By relying on professionals, you can really relax & enjoy your adventure. Unless you really enjoy large cities, I would only recommend San Jose as an arrival and departure point :) over 8 years ago
