Costa Rica - Itenerary late september

Jump to last reply

Hi- First time to costa rica- traveling with my mom ( 80yr) for 10 days. We are looking for a cultural relaxing experience. We are interested in the cocoa and coffee plantation tours, epicurean delights, wildlife viewing from accessible means, nothing to strenuous- perhaps a boat? Some fun in the sun and swimming. We are flying in and out of San Jose. Would love to hear some itinerary suggestions, also we plan on taking shuttles from place to place rather than renting a car.
It seems that most folks just stop in SJ for the night, is the worthwhile spending some time in the city and do day trips and then heading over to either Manuel Antonio,Puerto Viejo or arenal , montevede? Hotel recommendations would be appreciated as well- moderate/pleasant easy access.
Thanks!
