    What is the best way to get to Taramindo from San Jose Airport?

    Or else you can take a van shuttle $40-$50, generally door-to-door. But it's a long ride (but that's how I'd do it). Or I'd change my flight to Liberia, which is an hour from Tamarindo. about 8 years ago

    A week long trip to Costa Rica

    Montezuma is a great place on the West Coast. Do you have your own car? If you're doing van shuttles or busses, the timings might not work out for Montezuma. about 8 years ago

    Best place to stay around montezuma in costa rica

    I think the best place to stay is the Montezuma Pacifico Hotel. It's a little place in the middle of town, but not on the busy road. It's next to the only church in town. A/C, hot water, private bathrooms, digital safe, WiFi, coffee and tea (in the mornings). Shared balcony upstairs and some rooms have a TV. And GREAT staff. There are fancier places but no one has the value this place has. http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=9.654991&lon=-85.067547&zoom=18&layers=M The number is +506 2642 0204 or +506 2642 0970. If you don’t speak Spanish, ask for Carlos. almost 8 years ago

    What is the best time to see wildlife and butterflies in Costa Rica?

    On the west coast, I rarely see butterflies outside. Unless they are escapees from from a nearby butterfly farm or while at a national park. I've seen them (but not in huge amounts) at the national park but no more or less than any other time of year (and I've been to the same one in December, February and April; possibly I saw less in December). I'd think animals have their own seasons. But I'd think more when it's not rainy season. Rainy season is July(?)-November (officially the "green season ends Nov. 15). I would say I've seen no more or less animals at specific times of the year; I've been to Costa Rica 12+ times (maybe 15?) At a variety of times throughout the year (usually November-May and one at the end of August / beginning of September). Sorry that it's not a very specific answer. about 8 years ago
