HELP! Celebrating New Year's Eve in Costa Rica for first trip!!

Jump to last reply

Hello!

These forums have always been so helpful. A friend and I found a great flight (last minute) to Costa Rica, but I realize that this is the high season and finding places to stay will be difficult. I am not sure where to start, but this is what I was thinking:

- Arrive in San Jose and spend night there (we get in on an 2 am flight)
- Drive to Tamarindo (with a stop in Nisara) for 2-3 days for NYE
- Day visit to Rincon de la vieja
- Day visit to Monteverde
-Drive to Arenal for 1 day
-Drive to Manuel Antonio for 2 days
-Drive back to San Jose for last day/flight out

Is this too much for 8 days? Are there better areas to visit?

Also, would appreciate inexpensive hotel/B&B suggestions!!

Thanks,
Shannon
