for beaches, central Pacific coast or Nicoya?

Jump to last reply

We're going to Costa Rica for the first time for our honeymoon and we only have 5 days. We're looking to spend half our time at the beach and 1/2 seeing some parks. I'd be tempted to head south to Osa but she isn't up for a domestic flight and doesn't want to be in the car for more than 4 hours in any one time.

I was thinking of either the Central Pacific coast, around Quepo or Uvita for the beaches and then checking out MA and Ballena or somewhere on Nicoya for the beaches and then going to either Arenal or Monteverde.

Any recommendations for either options? We'll be going at the end of April. For beaches, I'm looking for populated enough so it isn't hard to find a meal but Tico enough so it feels like we're outside the US.
