La Fortuna, Monteverde, Santa Teresa/Malpais/Montezuma (10 days)

Jump to last reply

A friend and I are leaving for Costa Rica in a month on a 10 day trip, traveling from San Jose to La Fortuna to Monteverde to Santa Teresa/Malpais/Montezuma and then back to San Jose. What I'm hoping you guys can do is recommend stops along the way between the villages, stuff to do not listed in travel books or the village websites, great places to eat and bars to hang out at, and just general advice.

San Jose: staying at Kap's place, only spending one day in San Jose because I hear that's all one needs, gonna walk around Otoya and Amon neighborhoods, Mercado Central, maybe gold or jade museum. Heard Jazz Cafe san Pedro, Steinworth, Pub Rock are good bars to check out. Food or cool stuff recommendations?

La Fortuna: Will be here 1.5 days. Renting a car and will drive here (anything along the way worth seeing?). Will raft and rappel and hike to arenal volcano and hot springs. Staying at Backpackers hostel. Heard there was a neat treehouse diner? as well as Soda la Parada was good and that Vagabundo was a fun bar.

Monteverde: Will be here 2 full days. Ziplining and hanging bridges (selvatura) and more hiking and horseback riding (sabines) and coffee tour planned (is this the best coffee plantation tour?) Staying at Monteverde Backpackers Hostel. A friend said Chimera? was good. Food or bars/clubs?

Santa Teresa/Malpais/Montezuma: These are all close, we're spending two nights in Santa Teresa (hostel 7) and one in Montezuma (luz en el cielo). Anything worth seeing on the trip from Monteverde to Santa Teresa? Don't really have much planned for these days, kind of hoping to relax on some nice beaches, do some yoga, maybe an easy surf class, see the montezuma waterfalls. Might skip malpais or maybe a day trip there. Food or bar or other stuff to do would be appreciated!

Super excited to live the pura vida and check out this beautiful country!
