Costa Rica activities

Jump to last reply

I cannot believe our trip to Costa Rica is only a week away! Thanks to lots of helpful comments here, I think we have a great trip planned. We have a list of tours and excursions that sound good to us, but I have not actually made reservations for any. I was planning to do that when we arrive so we have some flexibility in our plans. Would it be better to make reservations before we go?

Also, I would love to get comments on our "short list". A little about us: we are nature lovers and look forward to seeing the wildlife. We are both active and experienced hikers. I prefer doing things on our own to guided tours, but I know a guide will show us things we would completely miss on our own. I am hoping to get a good balance of guided and independent activities.

Bosque del Cabo (4 days):
Hiking grounds on our own
Botanical Gardens tour
Tree climb with Everyday adventures
Maybe sunset kayaking with Escondido Trex

Lost Iguana, Arenal (4 days)
Hanging Bridges - on our own or guided tour?
Sky tram Canopy tour - should we do this or the zip line in Monte Verde?
La Fortuna waterfall

Hidden Canopy, Monte Verde (3 days)
guided forest walk first day then go back to hike on our own a later day
night walk with hotel guide
self-guided suspended bridges tour
Canopy zip line with Original Canopy or Sky Trek (if we do not do zip line in Arenal)
bat jungle?
