run yourself ragged and miss the great feel of Costa Rica.
Where in Costa Rica
If you come to
Costa Rica you
have to visit the Arenal Volcano. It is one of the
most active volcanoes in the world. The hot springs are a must, too.
Monteverde is a bit
overrated, and there are a lot of tourists. The cloud forest is still impressive, but if
you want to see animals better go to Manuel Antonio. It is easy to spot different kinds of
monkeys, slots and birds there.
If you have your own
dont drive by night. There are several potholes in the streets and most of the roads
are not lit up. In Costa Rica it gets dark around 6pm.
Travelling from one coast to the other can be time consuming, because
you have to go through San Jose.
