Trip Report Best vacation in my life (in CR) and I traveled IN many places in my life

Jump to last reply

Hi,

Got back from Costa Rica and had the most wonderful time in a 10 days stay there.

It was my first time but you can bet that it won't be the last time.

Some recommendations and tips from my trip:

Don’t skip Corcovado, we saw there so many animals and the place is so raw in the good meaning of it that I truly think that if you don’t go to Corcovado once in Costa Rica, you missed her main attraction.

We stayed there at Aguila De Osa, Bradd Johnson the owner is a great guy and the place is wonderful with nice rooms, good food, everything a couple needs when staying in Corcovado.

On the way from Arenal Volcano to Manuel Antonio we had A stop at Canopy San Lorenzo, we did the zip lines, include the Tarzan swing, the competition cables and the Superman, something about the Superman, this is a 750 meters cables that lasts around 45 seconds, that was a thrill!

In Manuel Antonio we stayed at San Bada, it’s quite new and very close to the national park (5 meters away) it’s in a very good standard and the the staff is more than welcoming.

In Arenal, no matter what they tell you the best hot springs is the Tabacon, I wouldn’t try anywhere else (I did Baldi and it’s just not the same).

I also recommend to talk to this guy, Alon from touroperators CR, many great tips I got from him while planning our trip

I hope this helps a little bit to you guys, I plan to go back for so many places that I didn’t see yet…
