Costa Rica experts: ideas needed for 2 days pre- and post- cycling trip.

Jump to last reply

I need your help because I know NOTHING about Costa Rica, and I have very little time in which to make some fast decisions.

We are taking a Backroads cycling trip to Costa Rica, and currently plan to arrive in San Jose TWO DAYS before they pick us up at the San Jose Marriott (which does not mean we have to stay there--it's just the meeting point).

We are immediately headed up to La Fortuna in the Lake Arenal area to spend three nights at the Nayara Hotel, Spa and Gardens where we cycle around the area, take a cruise on the lake, and spend a lot of chill time, too.

After this stay, we fly to Nicoya and cycle down along the Little and Big Nicoya gulfs to the Tango Mar Beach Resort for the next two nights.

We then are flown back to San Jose from the Playa Tambor airstrip and shuttled back to the San Jose Marriott.

However, we do not have to go back there if we want to explore other options for the next two days either around Nicoya or elsewhere.

So with this established itinerary, does anything leap to mind as an efficient use of time for the two days before starting/ending in San Jose; and the two days after, starting in either Nicoya or out of the Playa Tambor airstrip or San Jose, and ending, no matter what, in San Jose?

I so appreciate any answers you can give.
