Costa Rica Itinerary Ideas for 8-9 Days

Jump to last reply

Well it seemed no sooner than I got back from 4 nights at the JW Marriott Guanacaste, my nephew informed me that he was engaged and the wedding is to take place in May at the Four Seasons Guanacaste! So this trip I'm looking to actually see more of the country and less of the big resorts except of course to go to the wedding.

I'm looking for a few places to stop before heading to the Four Seasons, which will be the last stop. My plan is to fly into San Jose and immediately go somewhere for a few nights and then make another stop for a few nights ending the trip in Guanacaste at the wedding for three days and two nights and head home from Liberia.

I definitely want to go to Arenal and stay at a place with thermal springs (prefer higher end hotel-suggestions are encouraged). So where else to go? I also prefer not to drive so I'll probably use a tour company to drive us around.

Please help! Thanks.
