2nd trip to Costa Rica: What did we MISS the first time??

Jump to last reply

We just received a wedding invitation to a cousin's destination wedding in Costa Rica for the end of January! The wedding will be near Jaco, so we'll spend a couple nights there.

Then where to? The Osa peninsula?

On our first trip to Costa Rica, we loved Monteverde and Arenal. We also visited Manuel Antonio, which I thought was overbuilt, and the rainforest was more impacted by man. We also spent a night in a place off the tourist trail...it used to be owned by Neta, before she moved, for those of you who remember Neta.

We love enjoying pristine nature...yet I do love my comforts, I must admit. I love walks in beautiful rainforest, and then being able to return to a hotel with comfortable beds, nice showers, etc.

I am just beginning to research this trip...it will be our second trip to beautiful Costa Rica! We'll probably have somewhere between 7 and 10 days.

Thanks for suggestions! My husband is a biologist, and he's generally more adventurous than I am. So we try to plan a trip which will have something for both of us. We're in our 50's.

I'm hoping some of our now grown daughters and son and son-in-law can come, but I'm not sure if they will manage it. It may be just my husband and I.

Pura Vida! >:D<
