Costa Rica Travel Help

Jump to last reply

Hi! Heading to Costa Rica November 19 through the 24th or 25th and I am trying to finalize my schedule. Any suggestions would be appreciated...good or bad with regards to what I have come up with, and any thing I may have missed! Would like to hit the volcano's, zipline, hike, rainforest, beach day and hit a small town or city for some culture.

Plan is to fly into Liberia. Arrive at Noon. Check in to hotel in Liberia. Assume it is about 2pm...are there excursions that are close enough to this area that I could still hit this late in the day. Was planning on trying to get in Rincon De La Vieja. Would leaving for there around 2pm leave enough time? Are there other options of cool spots to hit near Liberia.

Next day Drive to Arenal? Too far to drive in order to get in a full days worth of volcano's and hot springs? Also heard there was biking in Arenal that sounds fun. If Arenal is too far, other option was to make it a beach day and go to either Gulf of Papagayou or Tamarindo.

Next day leave Liberia and drive to Zephyr Resort in Puntenerus/Jaco area. Spend three nights here. While in this area, try to get in Manuel Antonio or Uvita. Can I zipline any where in the Jaco area?

Final day would be drive to San Jose - spend a few hours here. And then fly out.

Recommendations? Does this seem like a decent feasible iteninrary or have I missed anything good? Thanks!
