First trip to Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

We are three young seniors trying to plan a trip to Costa Rica for the last 2 weeks of January. We tried to go with Caravan tours, but they are full. We are retired and are on fixed incomes. We don't mind roughing it a bit, but not for the entire trip. Is it too late to plan it on our own? We' think we'd like to see Monteverde (cloud forest), Poas Volcano (butterfly, humminbird gardens, la paz waterfall) , or Arenal volcano, a coffee plantation and hot springs. We have done a lot of reading but we are not sure where to go from here.
Suggestons?
