I am going to SanJose 5/5-5/12. I want know if I should stay there at a hotel the whole trip and do day excursions. I want a place that is in walking distance of resturants, night life, museums, ect. My plans are to Mountain bike, snorkel, sandy beach tropical laid back atmosphere ,sea kayak, jungle canopy(nature preserve), hotsprings, climb a volcano if possible. I usually do not like to go on tours. But I would if there is not a lot of people and it's not just being on a bus for most of the day I will consider it. Is renting a motorbike, a car, or other transprtation more desireable (bus) taxi.
