April Costa Rica
We are taking a trip to Costa Rica the first week of April. We plan to spend a few nights in Arenal and a few nights at the beach (Riu Palace). We're going to do some rafting and zip lining. Any other suggestions and how are the beaches and water for just lounging?

re: April Costa Rica
I am going to Rui in September and although I haven't been yet, I have heard the Arenal volcano tour, ATV tour, and white water rafting is great Also heard it's good to take a day trip to Nicaragua to check out the scene there. Heard coco beach is worth a trip for night life or dining.

Will be there at the same time and also spending a couple nights at Arenal. We are doing a boat tour over to Isla Tortuga (full day) and the beach looks great out there. Also heading to Manuel Antonio for a few days.

re: April Costa Rica

I'm planning an April trip too. I'll probably head straight to La Fortuna (Arenal) for some hiking and hot springs. Then I'm heading over to Monteverde for ziplining, hanging bridges and a tour of the cloud forrest. Then I'm going to finish with a few days at the beach.

The only thing I'm unsure of is the final beach segment. Looking at Manuel Antonio, Tamarindo or some place off the beaten path.

Manuel Antonio is in that same area as monteverde and arenal.

My favorite spot in Costa Rica was monteverde

It’s actually a good little haul form Arenal to Manuel Antonio.

Most people hit those three together on the same trip.

That is what we did. Flew into San Jose. Shuttle to Monteverde for a couple nights, then to Arenal for a couple nights, then to Manual Antonio for rest of trip, back to San Jose to fly home.


We did spend a lot of time on the road. If I ever go back....I'm packing really light and just taking small planes from location to location.

re: April Costa Rica
Went to Arenal in January. Hotel nayara is incredible- highly recommend. Skip the hanging bridges and try to do the waterfall repelling. La Fortuna is fun to walk around and visit the local bars. If you are Catholic, their church in the middle of town was awesome. The local hot springs were pretty cool. We just went to the public one.
