Please Check My Itinerary for Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be visiting Costa Rica for our first time in mid-May 2013 and I would really appreciate feedback on my itinerary.

1) We booked a Groupon that includes a 4-night stay at Casa Luna Hotel and Spa in La Fortuna. We extended this to 6 nights. The Groupon includes zip-lining, white water rafting, horseback riding and transportation to/from the airport in San Jose.
2) I thought then that we would get a rental car in San Jose and drive down to Manuel Antonio for an additional 5 nights so as to enjoy the park, some beach time, the Villa Vanilla Spice tour, and the Amigos Del Rio 10-in-1 Tour.
3) After that, two nights near the airport so that we can spend a day visiting a coffee plantation and the Poa Volcano and maybe the waterfalls.

Does this sound like a doable plan? Also, is it possible for me to rent a car in La Fortuna and return it to the airport in San Jose as that would definitely shave off some of the driving time. I am vacillating on the car, but it seems like renting a car would be about the same price as hiring a driver to get us to the various points in the country and give us a bit more flexibility in MA as our hotel is not located right in town....your opinion here is helpful.

Thanks much!
