    • Rio Celeste in rainy season

      Costa Rica Jun 12, 2014 at 1:17 AM

      This may sound a bit silly...but is Rio Celeste still blue (like in the pictures ;-O) during the rainy season, or after heavy rainfall? Or is it muddy and yellowish?
      I could go mid-july, not the heaviest of rain yet, I have been told...

    • First time to Costa Rica, my 12 day ?

      Costa Rica Jun 11, 2014 at 8:36 PM

      We are hoping to spend approx 12 days in CR. This is what we have planned so far.
      Fly into SJO, stay 1 night. Fly down to the OSA peninsula and stay at an eco lodge for 4 nights. We will fly out from PJ to SJO to Arenal (same day), and stay that night at Arenal Observatory Lodge. Stay at Arenal Observatory Lodge for 3 nights. Than, take a shuttle to Monteverde, and stay 2 nights(any hotel recommendations in Monteverde?). Fly to SJO, stay 1 night. Next day fly out.

      Anyone have any tips/suggestions? I figure we don't need to stay at a beach place, since the eco lodge will have a beach. Also, since arenal/monteverde are in the middle of the country, it's far from the coast. Is there too much overlap in Arenal/Monteverde? Should I go to one and not the other? Anywhere we should visit that's not on the above list? We feel going to the northern part of the country is too far, unless someone can tell me otherwise :) Thanks for the help.

      Boat from Los Chiles to Caño Negro?

      Costa Rica Jun 25, 2014 at 4:25 AM

      Is it possible to go by boat instead of bus in the rainy season from Los Chiles to Caño Negro? I read somewhere about it but can’t find it anymore.

    • Safe for a woman traveling alone in San Jose?

      San José Jun 17, 2014 at 10:35 PM

      I'm trying to plan a trip to Costa Rica. I wanted to stay in Arenal, but the hotel is in San Jose. Is it safe for a woman traveling alone to stay in San Jose and take a day trip by bus to Arenal, La Fortuna, etc.? Also, has the Asian Striped Tiger mosquito become a problem in Costa Rica? ~Thanks!

      Costa Rica Jul 4, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      Still having trouble with transportation issues from San Jose to Monteverde and then from Monteverde to Samara. Back to airport from Samara. The $150 x 2( to MV then from Samara) for the shuttle is more than we would like to spend and don't mind the public bus but can we easily tell which ones to change to during the changes. For car rental how bad are the roads to and in Monteverde? Any suggestions or anyone wanting to share transportation July 11 to Monteverde?

      Caribbean or Pacific

      Costa Rica Jun 14, 2014 at 2:17 PM

      Just would like to ask your opinion on which beach you would recommend, the ones on the Caribbean side or Pacific side.  I know the Caribbean side will be further from Monteverde, but have heard they are a little less crowed.  Just would love your input/suggestions on which beaches you recommend and also places to stay that you recommend.  Do you know anything about Los Pinos Cabanas y Jardines in Monreverde?  I appreciate all  your help and suggestions!

      Thank you
