Hi, I would appreciate any helpful comments. My husband and I are in our 50s and hope to spend about two weeks in Costa Rica in December over Christmas. I would like opinions on our itinerary and if we are spending enough time in each place and if there are places we should include and trips we should consider taking. We fly to San Jose and stay the night. Next day we bus to Tortuguero for 2 days - one day on a boat trip on the canals seeing wildlife. No plans for day two so open to suggestions. Then bus to La Fortuna for 2 days – one day hiking and hot springs and one day exploring the rainforest on hanging bridges. Is La Fortuna Waterfall worth a visit for a swim? It seems that most places eg parks, hot springs, waterfall all charge an entrance fee. Are we stretching ourselves and do we need more time and should we see more. Then bus to Monteverde for 2 days – we will probably visit Santa Elena and do a canopy tour and hanging bridges and little horseriding. Then bus to either Manuel Antonio or Tamarindo to relax for 5 or 6 days by the beach, My preference is Manuel Antonio but quite a few people seem to go to Tamarindo. I would like to do little scuba and like the place to have shops and the opportunity to take day trips. We don’t want 24/7 nightlife but we do like places to eat and shop for food/gifts. Is Manuel Antonia a better option? One last question re: humidity, my husband is moderate asthmatic, will the weather be quite heavy going? Thank you.
