I just got home from a great 16-day trip to Costa Rica. I did a tour with Gap Adventures, and got to see a lot of the country.
Just a few highlights: I went nature hiking and kayaking in Puerto Viejo/Manzanillo, didn’t see any turtles in Tortuguero, went swimming in a waterfall in Rara Avis, went whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and volcano hiking in Fortuna/Arenal, on a zipline canopy tour in Monteverde, snorkelling and dolphin watching in Manuel Antonio, and got mugged in San Jose.
Well, okay, that last one was a lowlight, not a highlight. But the rest of the trip was fantastic.
Anyone who wants more info, let me know.
