Costa Rica in early May!

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am so excited to finally be planning a trip to Costa Rica! I've wanted to go since 2009 but had to postpone because of the delightful first addition to our family. But now the little one is just over 2 and will be spending a rare week with her grandparents who can't wait to spoil her - meaning me and the mr. get the entire week to ourselves!

i really want to have a good mixture of relaxing (beach, hot springs) and adventure (ziplining, rain forest exploring). and costa rica seems perfect! i'm tentatively planning to fly into san jose, then head directly to Arenal for hot springs/rainforest activities/etc before ending in the manual antonio area for the beaches. likely will arrive on a sunday and depart on a friday, so don't want to cram too much in. anything that is a not to be missed?

i've been researching hotels in the Arenal area and of course, all the nice ones are super expensive. is there anything that is a great gem for no more than $250/night? the nayara so great but soo pricey! the lost iguana looks good (3 nights for the price of 2!)- but it doesn't have an on-site hot springs. is it worth it to go with a venue that has it on-site?

thank you!!
