Need help Planning Costa Rica Trip

Jump to last reply

I have never been to Costa Rica before but am planning a trip for myself and 2 kids (11 and 16 at that time). Trying to figure out the best place to go but too much to choose from. Was thinking for first time might be best to limit myself to Tamarindo as it seems to have everything there or within a day trip. However, I really want to go to Manuel Antonio as it sounds more along my style. Planning on minimum of 10 days in early March 2014. Want good food, beach, maybe try surfing or snorkeling and wildlife/jungle. Not into shopping or being in a big crowd of tourists. (I know bad timing in March) Would love to see turtles and volcano mixed in there if possible. Hotels just need to be clean and safe not luxurious.

Would appreciate any help or suggestions..
