Costa Rica--for 7 days,1st time traveler.

Jump to last reply

Me and my husband will be travelling to CR for the 1st time. We need advice from those who have been there. We'll be landing at SJ airport.
We are thinking of 3 days at the beach n 4 days on mountains.
Which places would be good for the beach? for mountain/volcano view?
We don't want to spend too much time on road to go from beach to mountains. Any place which is easy access to both ?
We would like to stay in a hotel located in national parks .
I personally would prefer to be in 1 hotel ,but i think it wouldn't be possible,the travel distance would increase ?
I am scared of heights and want a zipline which is easy to do!
Any other suggestions are welcome too.
Thank you:)
