    • From Monteverde to Playa Grande/Tamarindo

      Costa Rica Jan 23, 2016 at 1:11 AM

      Hi VT

      In two weeks I'm going to Costa Rica for one month. After staying in Monteverde I'm going to Playa Grande, but I can't find any public bus from Monteverde to Playa Grande. What to do? Should I split the trip in two and find a place for the night?
      When at Playa Grande I've planned to learn how to surf. Lonely Planet suggest to take surf lessons at Playa Tamarindo - which do you prefer?

      Kind regards
      Rasmus from Denmark

    • info would be greatly appreciated

      Costa Rica Jan 8, 2016 at 7:44 AM

      Im headed to Playa Chiquita in Feb for 2 weeks and I am wondering a few things.

      1. Hows the drive from San Jose to Puerto Viejo? We are taking a private shuttle as there will be a big group of us going.
      2. What is more recommended American Money or Colones?
      3. Would it be appreciated to bring the children baseballs and stuff along that line? We did this in Nicaragua and Panama and it seemed to be a hit with them. We also brought toothpaste and tooth brushes.
      4. This is my first time to Costa Rica and if there is anything i should know before hand please let me know!!!

      Turtle Nesting

      by grandmaR Online Now Dec 31, 2014 at 8:19 AM

      I have been told that the guides use infra-red light for the tourists to see the turtle nesting. I would like to observe and photograph this, but the websites say that no cameras are permitted. Is there any way I could get permission to use a non-flash digital camera?

      by pownkat Online Now Jun 1, 2013 at 7:55 PM

      We will be leaving Monteverde early in the morning and would like to get to Tortuguero in the evening, so we can see the turtles that night. We will have a rental car. What is the best way to travel to Tortuguero, and the best place to stay in order to see the turtles?

    • camping at ranger stations

      by Richardlockey Online Now Jun 11, 2009 at 5:03 AM

      Please could anyone tell me if the ranger stations within the Tortuguero national
      park allow camping in hammocks. I am planning to travel to the park in July and
      did not wish to carry a tent when a hammock is much smaller and more
      comfortable.

      Thank you

    • Best way to get to and away from Tortuguero

      by terrirob Online Now Nov 17, 2008 at 7:51 AM

      We are planning on visiting Tortuguero in August and was wondering if the best way to get there is the jeep/boat through Limon? I read that you can also get there via jeep/boat via Cariari, though, that doesn't seem to be the standard route. We will be traveling with our school-age kids.

      We also were thinking of traveling to Arenal and Monteverde and was wondering if there was a reasonable route to get to either one directly from Tortuguero without having to go back to San Jose?

      Thanks. Terri

      Do I need a 4X4 car?

      by Quiquog Online Now Sep 23, 2006 at 6:12 AM

      We are 6 people touring Costa Rica from Tortugero to Arenal, then Manuel Antonio and finally Poas.
      We start on November 9th. The tour agency offered us a non 4X4, 12 seats car.
      Is this enough or do we need a 4X4 car?

      Thanks for all answers

    • Where are the hotels?

      by Viktorm Online Now Aug 4, 2006 at 12:33 PM

      I am going to this area in December, and I am rather confused about the lodging
      in Tortugero. I keep finding lodges which include bus transport, boat transport, and lodging as one price. Is there no way to fly in from San Jose,
      stay in a hotel, hire a guide for the area, without paying the high price of the all-inclusive packages?
      Anyone been there to help me plan this out?
      Thanks.
