where to stay  (2 Answers)

question 1: We arrive on Thursday at 1:22 am. Do I book a hotel for Thursday or Wednesday? Not sure.

question 2: We want to stay in Manuel Antonio National Park. I am a woman travelling with two children. Any suggestions? I don't want to pay much over $100, less would be great. Saturday - Thursday.

question 3: How do we get from San Jose to Manuel Antonio? Bus I am assuming and do I have to book that in advance? 2.5 hours journey correct? How much will I pay?

Thanks for all the helpful tips!

What to do In Alajuela Area  (4 Answers)

Our 15-day tour of Cost Rica will start on January 19, 2017 in San Jose (3 nights) and will take us through the country for the next 12 days and end in San Jose in the morning of February 2, 2017. Then we move to the Marriott Hotel in Alajuela (to be closer to the airport) for our post tour stay. I am trying to decide whether to spend 2 (Thursday - Saturday ) or 3 more nights (Thursday - Sunday) in the Alajuela area. What are there to do in Alajuela for 3 days considering that we would have already visited most of the tourist attractions in San Jose? Is there swimming in the area?

Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Help with Trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras  (1 Answer)

In the second week of May I need to be in Tegucigalpa, Honduras on a Wednesday (9th). I am hoping someone can suggest a short trip that I could take, arriving on the previous Friday (4th) or Saturday (5th), and ending in Tegucigalpa on Wednesday. I am currently considering flying into San Jose and traveling by bus through Nicaragua, but not committed to that in anyway.

Other than the definite need to be in Tegucigalpa on Wednesday, I have no other requirements. I would prefer to fly into a major city to keep airfare down (flying in from Major US city), but other than that my budget is pretty flexible. I am also flexible to travel conditions. I need to book my flight soon, so any quick suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks,
Travis

7-days in Costa Rica. Can we really see anything?  (1 Answer)

Hi,

My wife and I are investigating a trip to Costa Rica early February for one week. I wanted to get some advice from knowledgeable folks in this forum.

We love the outdoors, love to self-drive when we can and at other times tour using buses, trains, and shuttles. We are looking to hike, explore wildlife, possibly snorkel, and also visit some of the ruins. If time permits, we'd love to visit some of the beaches and also some other adventure tours.

1. Is one week sufficient for us to explore Costa Rica?
2. If we were to select one or two experiences that we would immerse ourselves in over the course of the week, what would they be?
3. What cities are a must visit during our stay?
4. Any suggestions on possible itineraries would be great.

Thanks

What time do I need to get to the airport?  (2 Answers)

My Delta flight leaves at 2:15PM on Tuesday, January 2nd going to Atlanta. It is flying out of San Jose, Costa Rica. The tour I am on says they expect to have me at the airport sometime between 11AM - 11:30AM (give or take 30 minutes for traffic issues), since it is a 4-hour drive. They say I should not take that flight because I will risk missing it. If I do not take that flight, I have to stay an extra day, which I do not want to do. I am a Diamond Medallion Delta member - do they have an expedited sky priority check-in lane there and/or a expedited sky priority security line there that might help??? What time do you think a good time would be to arrive? If worse came to worse and I arrived at noon because of a lot of traffic, do you think I would miss my 2:15 flight??
Thanks for any advice/input! :)
