My husband and I are staying in Hatillo- we've explored Quepos, Manuel Antonio, Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal. We had planned to stay in this area the whole time - but realize we need a change of scenery. We ruled out going to the Osa this time.
Any suggestions? Have not seen La Fortuna or Arenal before but we really don't like super touristy stuff. We fly out of SJO Saturday, today is Wednesday. Any suggestions on things to see or do, day trips from here (Hatillo, near Dominical) or where…

Hi! I land at SJO next month at 3 pm and since I only have a week in CR, I want to make the most of it... The plan was to head straight to the Caribbean Coast (Pto Viejo/Cahuita), but since I'm arriving at 3pm it's too late for transfers/public bus (as far as I can tell).
Any ideas of ways to get to the caribbean coast that afternoon (besides a $200+ private car)?
If not, any suggestions of places to go that would be good for the late afternoon/evening near San Jose? Ideally one from which…
Hi everyone! Hope you can give us some advice on our trip!

I'm waiting for my Moon guide to arrive and have been reading online, but could use some insight on itinerary. I realize that CR is well traveled but would like to also find a…
So I was planning to rent a car for the whole month of Feb next year for my trip as through travelocity it came out to $450 for the month. Now I've realized that's a scam of sorts and it will cost another $1000 on top of that for hidden fees and insurance.... I can't afford that unfortunately.
I normally travel by bus, motorbikes and what not but this time I have a little tiny baby that I'll be wearing on me and a backpack so I am a bit more weary of that as getting stuck somewhere at night as…
Hey there forum!
My two friends and I are arriving in Costa Rica at the end of September and could really use your expert advice!
With landing at SJO at 12pm, what is the best way to get to Puerto Viejo? Is there a way to avoid going into San Jose city? Are there any shared shuttle services from the airport directly to the Caribbean coast/Puerto Viejo?
I've read mixed things about renting a car, considering the roads and weather conditions. We are thinking about renting from…
