Best places in Costa Rica for adventurous, non-beach trip?

Jump to last reply

Looking to go to CR for the first time. 7 - 10 day trip in May. Adventurous but not over the top. Would like to explore a rainforest, white water raft, zip line, repel down a waterfall, and check out a cool hanging bridge or two. Definitely not interested in spending time on the beach. We will fly into San Jose and rent our own car.

I've read quite a few posts and I am still unclear how far apart the different cities are. From what I understand, looking at a map doesn't do any good because it takes longer than you would think due to road conditions.

Any suggestions on an itinerary would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
