Christmas in Costa Rica - 3 days

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Costa Rica for 3 days for Christmas - arriving the early afternoon of Christmas day (Thursday) and leaving the early morning on the 28th (Sunday). We understand that is not very much time at all - we realized these few days would be the only vacation time available to us for awhile so we wanted to make the trip. We redeemed frequent flyer miles so it was very inexpensive. We are arriving and departing from SJO.

We are hoping for some advice and guidance on the best way to tackle these 3 days in order to maximize our experiences.

We are interested in the following types of activities:
- interacting with/observing animals (I'd love to get up close with a sloth)
- rain forest treks
- seeing the beaches (I'm an open-water diver but my husband is not, and neither of us are interested in surfing so it would just be a short trip to the water most likely)
- zip-lining
- gardens/parks

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
