Suggested Costa Rica plan...need advice!

Jump to last reply

Hi All - really need some help planning our trip to Costa Rica and seen that there is some fab advice on this site!

We can go anytime from June 2014 - February 2015 (at the moment thinking late Nov 14, early Dec 15.) We have between 10-14 days.

At the moment I am thinking of Arenal, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio - what does everyone think and am I missing out anywhere special?

I would quite like to have seen the turtles but don't know if it is worth getting rained on and coming in wet season just for the turtles - what do you all think?

The only other question is about transport - I read so much conflicting advice about car rental and did not know as the above three places are quite well travelled this would be absolutely fine or if it is best to get a bus/private driver?
Our ideal option would be to hire but I don't want to be stressed with high crime, horrendous roads etc etc

If any of you have some advice/tips or can suggest a fabulous 10-14 day itinerary to give us a flavour of Costa Rica that would be amazing xxx
