    • Is cliff jumping at the Nauyaca Waterfalls possible in January?

      Costa Rica Dec 14, 2014 at 4:18 PM

      Traveling to Costa Rica at the end of January. My itenarary includes a trip to the Nauyaca Waterfalls. There is a place there to make a 75ft jump into the water at the base of the falls. During the time of the year when I will be there (dry season?) will there be enough water to do the jumps at the falls?
      Thanks, Brian

      Bus Travel Across CR in early March, 2015

      Costa Rica Nov 22, 2014 at 3:12 PM

      My wife and I are getting off a cruise ship in Limon on the East coast at about 7:00 am and want to take a bus to Tamarindo, on the West coast, so hopefully a daylight trip across CR. What bus service is available and how reliable and comfortable is it? BTW, we are both seniors and I am 6'4". We travel light, just with carry-ons. Any advice is appreciated.

      Driving in Costa Rica

      Costa Rica Nov 28, 2014 at 10:15 PM

      Hola!
      Ok, we are about to leave for San Jose, then Quepos, with a couple day stop in Cartago for work first. I am braving it by renting a car out of the airport. Two questions please:
      1. For some reason I am kinda nervous about driving in and around San Jose. I speak a bit of Spanish and normally I am an excellent driver (live in LA and have driven in many places). Are there any different rules or customs that will get me in trouble? Should I take this more seriously than just going for it?

      2. My first leg will be driving from the main airport and then down towards Cartago. I see what looks easy in taking Highway 1 to Highway 39 to Highway 2. But I am looking at Google earth and see they have many alternate names. My question is if they post the highway names very well, or should I write down and look for every one of these Calles y Avenidas?

      Should I just take a taxi! Or should I just not worry, It mostly makes sense????

      Thanks ahead for any advise.
      Rich.

    • Skywalk, Carara National Park

      Will be ariving in Puntarenas Costa Rica from cruise ship and wondered if anyone knew if we could get to the Carara Nat` Pk' by shuttle and how much it would be, or how much a taxi and driver would charge for the day. I've read the park is free to enter, but do you have to pay to use the "skywalk" cable bridge. Thanks to any one who can help. Vonysc

    • Taxi to Playa Santa Ana in Puntarenas

      by jeana-r Online Now Jan 28, 2010 at 12:26 PM

      Hi,

      Will be visiting Puntarenas on a one day stop and would like to visit Playa Santa Ana. I believe it's the closest beach in town.

      Is there an easy inexpensive way to get the beach? Taxis? Can you tell me approx the taxi fare and whether or not I have to make arrangements for a taxi to pick me up and return me to the Cruise ship dock?

      Many thanks

      Hi, Also we will visit Puntarenas for one day. The privately owned tour operator is sold out for that day. Does anybody know a local with a van who can take us out sightseeing?

      Puntarenas for a Day!

      by bobnfran Online Now Dec 19, 2005 at 1:29 PM

      My wife and I will be in Puntarenas for just one day (arriving by cruiseship) on January 3rd from 9:00am to 6:00pm. We want to see and do as much as possible in this very short time. We would appreciate a suggested "itinerary" of must-see and must-do activities from morning to night.

      We are "young", active seniors and would be open to all ideas and suggestions. We like hiking, rafting, etc..the Canopy Tour sounds interesting. We know it will be a whirlwind day, but we are ready and willing.

      If there are any local VT's who could be available to personally guide/drive us thru this day, that would be even better!
