Costa Rica in a week--help needed!

Jump to last reply

Dear Fellow Travelers,

I am traveling with my partner to Costa Rica next month (July--unfortunately during the rainy season). We are only afforded a week of vacation and we are eager to engage in as much hiking and sightseeing as possible (we love simply being in nature, but adventure excursions are up our alley as well). I am completely at a loss as to where to go in CR with such a limited time frame--we would be so grateful for any suggestions! We are flying into Juan Santamaria SJO and trying to keep expenses low.

-What sights are great for nature lovers?
-How do we navigate transportation from the airport to other areas and back on a budget?
-We would greatly appreciate hotel/tour/food recommendations and/or anything else you can think of!

Thank you in advance for all of your wisdom and assistance! This is a terrific forum!
