Well - we spent 6 days in Costa Rica and LOVED it. Many of my friends had already been there so it was helpful to talk to people beforehand. We were in San Jose the first night. Arenal the next. MonteVerde two nights. And then on the coast at Playa del Coco/ Ocotal. We enjoyed every area and we stayed in some really fun hotels! The food was fabulous. The people were great. It was rainy season so we got at least a little rain every day which made it interesting, but it didn't ruin too many plans.
We did a zip line in Monte Verde which was through a protected rainforest. So fun!
Our hotel in Arenal was right at the base of the active Volcano.

Its funny because James was quite hesitant to go to Costa Rica becuase his only foreign travel has been Mexico. Beforehand he said he would have rather gone to Hawaii... But during and after.. he has said that he is so glad we went to Costa Rica. He has been recommending to everyone and their dog..
