I'm going to Costa Rica for the first time in Feb for 2 weeks. I would like to explore Costa Rica but also have a relaxing holiday on the beach, snorkeling etc near to restaurants and some night life but not too close to the party! This is my proposed itinerary, any thoughts, suggestions or recommendations?
Arrive late in San Jose - stay 1 night
3 days in La Fortuna exploring the Arenal and Tenorio Park
2 days in Tortuguero exploring the park
7 days in Puerto Viejo surrounding area, thinking of staying in Punta Uva
Back to San Jose
Is there anywhere else worth stopping at that would fit in with my proposed route?
