      I'm trying to plan a trip to Costa Rica. I wanted to stay in Arenal, but the hotel is in San Jose.

      hi there! am planning on coming in 8/15-9/5 from san jose to arenal to western beaches. i do want to explore the country a bit without limitations, but am also really wanting to lay on the beach much of the time. do i really need a 4 wheel drive for this? I read elsewhere yes because of rainy season, but if I stay on main roads as I tool around will that limit me? and if so, to go off the main roads then is a 4X4 necessary? many thanks?

      is san jose worth spending any time in?

      San José Jul 20, 2013 at 7:57 PM

      upon arrival into costa rica is it worth spending any time in san jose, or best to head directly out to the waterfalls, volcanoes and/or beaches?
      I have 3 weeks and want as much nature and relaxation and beach as I can get. i'm planning on landing in san jose and trying to decide whether to stay there for the first weekend, or to go directly to the volcanoes and hot springs in arenal and then off to the pacific coast from there

    • From La Fortuna to SJO

      San José Jun 17, 2013 at 2:11 PM

      I'm looking for recommendations on how to get from La Fortuna/Arenal area to Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJ0) early enough to catch an 11:30am flight. Most shuttles I checked have the earliest departure leaving La Fortuna at 7:30am which is hardly enough time to catch my flight. Help!?

    • Help with Trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras

      San José Feb 29, 2012 at 12:00 PM

      In the second week of May I need to be in Tegucigalpa, Honduras on a Wednesday (9th). I am hoping someone can suggest a short trip that I could take, arriving on the previous Friday (4th) or Saturday (5th), and ending in Tegucigalpa on Wednesday. I am currently considering flying into San Jose and traveling by bus through Nicaragua, but not committed to that in anyway.

      Other than the definite need to be in Tegucigalpa on Wednesday, I have no other requirements. I would prefer to fly into a major city to keep airfare down (flying in from Major US city), but other than that my budget is pretty flexible. I am also flexible to travel conditions. I need to book my flight soon, so any quick suggestions are appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Travis

    • 7-days in Costa Rica. Can we really see anything?

      San José Jan 4, 2012 at 9:11 PM

      Hi,

      My wife and I are investigating a trip to Costa Rica early February for one week. I wanted to get some advice from knowledgeable folks in this forum.

      We love the outdoors, love to self-drive when we can and at other times tour using buses, trains, and shuttles. We are looking to hike, explore wildlife, possibly snorkel, and also visit some of the ruins. If time permits, we'd love to visit some of the beaches and also some other adventure tours.

      1. Is one week sufficient for us to explore Costa Rica?
      2. If we were to select one or two experiences that we would immerse ourselves in over the course of the week, what would they be?
      3. What cities are a must visit during our stay?
      4. Any suggestions on possible itineraries would be great.

      Thanks

    • What time do I need to get to the airport?

      San José Dec 8, 2011 at 2:45 PM

      My Delta flight leaves at 2:15PM on Tuesday, January 2nd going to Atlanta. It is flying out of San Jose, Costa Rica. The tour I am on says they expect to have me at the airport sometime between 11AM - 11:30AM (give or take 30 minutes for traffic issues), since it is a 4-hour drive. They say I should not take that flight because I will risk missing it. If I do not take that flight, I have to stay an extra day, which I do not want to do. I am a Diamond Medallion Delta member - do they have an expedited sky priority check-in lane there and/or a expedited sky priority security line there that might help??? What time do you think a good time would be to arrive? If worse came to worse and I arrived at noon because of a lot of traffic, do you think I would miss my 2:15 flight??
      Thanks for any advice/input! :)

    • is San Isidoro del General a good base for a week visit?

      Provincia de San José Sep 24, 2011 at 12:25 PM

      Hi Everyone,
      This is my first visit, so please excuse any ignorance I may exhibit.
      Some friends have offered us a time share for a week in CR. Although it looks like the northwest is more tourism oriented, the only place we can find that is available anytime soon is "Hotel del Sur" in San Isidoro del General.
      Would this location work as a base for a week's visit? We can rent a car; a 4x4 if necessary.
      Any advice would be appreciated; I need to make a decision pretty quickly
      thanks,
      Brad

      From the airport to Santa Elena

      San José Jan 24, 2010 at 9:47 AM

      I know, the proper way to get from San Jose to Santa Elena is via the bus that leaves from San Jose at 2:30 PM. Put I can't get a flight that arrives at the airport in time to make the trip from the airport to the bus station. Anyway, I already have my ticket--I arrive at 3:00 PM. So is there another way? For example, is there a bus that goes from the airport to Santa Elana?
      My alternative is to spend the night and leave the next day, rent a car, or take a taxi for a four hour trip. I don't really want to do any of these.
      I appreciate any advice!
