Costa Rica Itinerary Planning

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (in our late 40's) will be visiting CR for the first time in mid-May and I currently have the following itinerary worked out:

Days 1-6: Stay in La Fortuna (Casa Luna Resort and Spa). Do ziplining, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and visit a thermal spa.
Days 7-11: Stay in Manuel Antonio (Hotel Parador), Visit park, go on ADR Adventure Park 10 in 1 Tour; Villa Vanilla Spice Tour; possibly ATV tour

This leaves us with 3 more nights (of which only two are viable sightseeing days). We will have a rental car and I thought we would head back towards the SJO area...my husband has never been *up close* to a volcano so I was thinking maybe spending those nights in the Alajuela area (perhaps Xandari?) as a base to visit the Doka Coffee Plantation, Poas Volcano and Sarchi. Or should we go further east - to the Orosi Valley maybe?

I'd appreciate any advice on the last part of our trip as I am very torn with what to do.
