help with 8 days of rainforest, beach and adventure in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

I am having a difficult time deciding on an itinerary for our 8 days in costa rica. I'm traveling in March with my husband and 3 children ages 26, 23, and 22 so we are looking for some adventure as well as exploring the rain forest and beaches. I have looked at many web sites and tour books but can't decide. I'm thinking maybe of going to monteverde, montezuma and manuel antonio. I think we will love the rainforest, waterfalls, canopy tours, beach with surfing, wildlife and some med-light rafting/kayaking.
Are these the best destinations for the activities we have in mind? I wonder if transportation works well for this loop as we are flying into SJO. I haven't seen any tours that go from sjo to monteverde but it seems logical to go from sjo to monteverde to montezuma to manuel antonio if these are the areas we settle on. Your insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
