Costa Rica in 2 weeks?? - 2012/04/10 17:21 Hi guys!!

Please help!! we are 3 girls from Spain planning a trip to Costa Rica for 2 weeks in August. I'm the only one surfing so we are looking for some spots with some snorkeling, or so… and some nightlife also! Maybe 10 days in the pacific coast and 5 in the Caribbean? Where would you recommend?? any suggestions??

not sure about to rent a car or use public transportation...

thank you all!!

Re:Costa Rica in 2 weeks?? - 2012/04/11 02:51 Limon and the Caribbean side is mostly black and a no no, very dangerous. Puntarenas is next to Baco Barranca or "Bug Bay" as I call it and is the ferry port for Mal Pais on the Nicoya Peninsula. Puntarenas is small, dirty and dangerous, its where the local's from San Jose go to the seaside, not tourists. Mal Pias is nice but kind of isolated and hard to get to as you have to take a car ferry and its a serious drive through mud and across rivers on sketchy so called roads.

You need to rethink your trip fly into Liberia not San Jose. San Jose is in the mountains and a 3 to 6 hour drive from anywhere. There is plenty to see and do in the Guanacaste region. Snorkeling, Jungle, Crocks, Monkeys, Forests, Volcanoes. If you want a safe adventure you can take a boat trip to Ollies Point in the National Park on the Nicaraguan border. Named after Oliver North and the Iran Contra affair. Its where the arms were smuggled into. Tamarindo has
the nite life.

I understand most flights go to San Jose but there are a lot that go to Liberia or you could get a connecting flight. You do not want to stay in San Jose and the airport is not LA International (LAX) California, safety is more like Russia, that's why the locals make the sign of the cross before takeoff LOL.

Note: August is (Winter) the Green or Wet season however the Guanacaste region is the driest area.
I was there for 10 days last August and it only rained the last night. Bring lots of BUG SPRAY and
Pink Zinc as the white hot sun will fry your Euro
butt! hehe

The best spot is all of Costa Rica: Playa Negra
