We really enjoyed the itinerary that our Costa Rica travel company created for us. They insisted that we see Tortuguero and we are happy to have seen it! We learned and saw some magnificent fauna and flora. We enjoyed the cloud forest, the rain forest and the tropical forest.The travel company went overboard to make sure that we were taken care of. They even sent a cake for my friend's BD.
The most memorable experiences were to spend a whole day in the cloud forest Monteverde, to Zipline in Arenal, and spend a couple of days in Tortuguero. We really enjoyed learning a lot about Costa Rica from the private drivers. We enjoyed the flexibility that it provided us. We loved stopping to see the crocodiles and to taste the fruit guanabana! We loved our hotels, especially Cariari Bed & Breakfast, in Heredia and Manuel Antonio. I can't say I loved the one in Tortuguero but it is still a must see.
I would definitely try to get to as many destinations within the country by plane because at least 2 1/2 days out of 10 was traveling, whereas we could have seen more and cut some traveling in half. I would highly encourage everyone to tell their clients about it, so they could have that option. I would want to know in details what to bring for each excursions. for example in Manuel Antonio, it would have been nice to know that we could have brought food, towels, bathing suits to stay at the beach afterwards. For the kayaking trip they should have had more rubber bags to protect our items or simply told us in advance that there was no place to leave our purses and not to bring much.
