    • Where to stay

      Costa Rica Feb 22, 2015 at 11:04 AM

      Planning a trip with husband and daughter (graduation gift). Looking for a resort with close beach access, golf course nearby, shopping, and Eco-adventures including zip lines and waterfalls. Budget friendly but still has a luxury feel. Traveling in March 2016. Are all inclusive resorts better than non inclusive? Is it worth renting a car or use local transportation?

      Liberia to Panama City

      Costa Rica Jan 30, 2015 at 12:43 PM

      The quickest and cheapest flights I could find flying form Vancouver to Panama City was to land in Liberia as I could not find any direct flights for less than 20 hours.
      I would appreciate any tips on travelling from Liberia to Panama City and back.
      Any connecting flights?
      How are the buses?
      Renting a car is a possibility but as a last resort.
      I have 10 days for my trip.

      Hello, please help, i have been to Costa Rica but that was over 12 years ago when i was in my early 20's!
      My boyfriend and I and Dog are looking for a needed get away 2-3 weeks. We are both fitness buffs and will need a decent fitness facility near by.

We really want an area that has some night life, fitness, excursions near, relaxing and dog friendly. Can anyone reccomend an area and also accomodation ideas would really be helpful or some links! Thank you!

    • Skywalk, Carara National Park

      by vonysc Online Now Oct 6, 2011 at 6:27 AM

      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

      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!
