Hello!, me and my boyfriend(20&29 yo) will be traveling to Costa Rica in late July and early August for 20 days. We love beaches and just chilling there, and we also like all kinds of activities! like raffting, canyoning, ziplining, parasailing, hiking, etc, Anything that gets our adrenaline kicking!
We have come up with a possible itinerary but we will like to hear your opinions as well!
Day 1-2: Spend the night in San Jose
Day 2-5: 3 nights in Manuel Antonio(were we would like to parasail, go to the beaches and the NP)
Day 5-10: 5 nights in La Fortuna ( this is were we ideally would be doing most of the adventure activities and visiting waterfalls and hot springs)
Day 10-13: 3 nights in Tamarindo( we are planning on relaxing here and having fun!. I'm also interested in Diamante park because of their zipline, do you think it's worth it to spend a day there? and it is possible to get there on public transportation?
Day 13-15: 2 nights in Monteverde( to do maybe one fun activity and see the cloud forest(?)
Day 15-19: 4 nights in Puerto Viejo( to enjoy the beaches that are in that area punta uva, cahuita NP)
Day 19-20: Last night in San Jose
My questions are: Do you think this itinerary is doable? we will be depending mostly on public transportation and maybe some shared shuttles.
Will you change something? add a place or omit some?
Our budget is pretty restricted, around 100-150 usd per day for the both of us.( not counting the flights)We don't mind not traveling in luxury and eating cheap food.
Thank you! all your comments will be greatly appreciated!! as well as suggestions!
