The trip was excellent. Especially the places and hotels recommended. The timing and itinerary were most important. There were two delays of the transfer, probably out of misunderstanding, but that did not interfere with our enjoyment of the whole experience.
The wonderful places. Tortuguero is a magic place, we loved staying at the Turtle Beach Lodge. Arenal was very nice. Monteverde is cold, but very beutiful. The pacific coast, with Tamarindo, was a great choice, specially the Cala Luna hotel on neighbour playa Langosta. The sunset on Langosta beach with a cocktail prepared on the beach was something not to be forgoten ever. The food is very good. Perhaps my best memories are from the ticos, the people from Costa Rica. They are allways smiling. After 2 weeks, I got used to that and in my connection back home in Panama airport I thought it was strange when I was not smiled at. Rafting and ziplines where very good. The river safaris where great, specially some kayaking we did in Tortuguero. The guides were knowdgeable in nature stuff and we had fun learning about geology, vulcanos animals and plants.
I don't think I would change anything big, maybe some details. The bus to Tortuguero, maybe, could be changed for a private van. It took some time to pick up passengers in many hotels. The van which took us to Monteverde broke twice along the way. I would change it for a newer 4x4.
