Costa Rica 1st time in April - SJO or LIR?

Jump to last reply

Husband and I going on 1st trip sans kids (almost 6 years).. i've been researching hotels and excursions -- pls gv any recommendations on either staying ALL-INCLUSIVE in a hotel (and where? in San Jose or Liberia?) or should we just hotel-hop every few days, depending on our excursion? and just pay daily on food?
not picky on accommodations, but would like to enjoy (not worry about safety etc)..
willing to splurge if worth it..
I looked at location of excursions and they all seem about the same distance from SJO and LIR.. so i'm just trying to figure out where to book my airport destination (and home base) to.

Bear in mind I am willing to scratch all of the below if you have master tour that would be great!! i am open to any/all sugg!!
Trip to CR is 22Apr - 30Apr 2012

would love to do:
-Arenal Hot Springs
-Monteverde Horseback riding
-Canopying
-Canyoneering
-Rio Pascuare White-Water Rafting
-Zip-lining
-El Trapiche Tour?

thanks in advance!
