I've been researching for our trip to Costa Rica for a few hours and was wondering if anyone had any tips.
We will be staying in San Jose for 1 day then in Manuel Antonio for 4.5 days in November.
Should we rent a car to get around? I saw on here people recommending Vamosrentacar.com. I looked and the rate for our stay was $184 total. Does this sound right and is it pretty safe to drive in Costa Rica? OR should we take a shuttle or the bus to Manuel Antonio. The shuttle was about $200…
im very ok to have fun alone, but some crazy things for sure better to do with company :)

Hi Everyone, I will be in Costa Rica from Dec.13 to probably February sometime and I am wondering if anyone could tell me if there are any interesting cultural events during that period. I am planning to travel around quite a bit so could plan my travels accordingly. I have found plenty of information in various places about beaches, volcanoes, rafting, jungle excursions etc. which I am interested in also, but little about cultural matters, such as Classical concerts, jazz, Christmas…
Hi - We are a couple in our early sixties planning our first trip to Costa Rica. We are flying in and out of LIR. The plan is to spend 5 nights at a beach where we can relax, walk on the beach, maybe swim in the pool, try some local food, local culture etc. We are not into the party scene and don't want to look at rows of resorts and high rises. We have ruled out Tamarindo and Jaco for that reason. We think Samara might be what we are looking for? We don't want to spend too much time…
I am going to travel to Panama and Costa Rica for 3 weeks at the end of March 2017. This will be my first time traveling solo and I am already pretty nervous about that :) I am a 29 years old swiss female (30 by the time of the travel) and I am seeking on any feedbacks and advices on my itinerary.
I am planning on enjoying nature, wildlife, beaches and good nightlife and my travel plans are as follows:
o Arriving: 16th March at 10.27
o Leaving: 18th of March early morning
My daughter and I are planning to spend the Christmas/New Year holidays in Costa Rica. We both like to be active; but my daughter likes more high energy sports such as surfing, scuba diving, rock climbing whereas I prefer to hike, snorkel, yoga. We both like to eat and drink and maybe shop a little so we’re not looking for a “sleepy” town. I’m looking for places where we could find most of these requirements within easy travelling distance. We hope to stay in a hostel (private room) to save…
Hello, I'm arriving in SJO at 11:35 am on the 29th, and my destination is Nosara. I see on here (http://thebusschedule.com/EN/cr/) that a bus leaves at 1:00 pm from Empresa Alfaro. Do you think it's realistic to get to the bus station in time from the airport, and that the bus wouldn't already be fully booked? If I can't make it and have to wait until the 7:30 departure the next morning, is it worth it to go to the station and book ahead?
I've traveled out of that station before, but it's been…

hallo to everybody, i'm planning an individual organized tour in CR so probably everything is already planned but my question is: WHAT ABOUT FOOD ???not just the recepies but an opinion can a sofisticated tourist eat and survive?
I travelled sufficiently around the world but in some places I enjoyed food in some other I survived. Are there special fruit or dessert or plates you really can suggest me, italian girl???is it there the problem of Montezuma Revenge?
I read a lot info about weather…
