I have five full days to spend in May, arriving Monday morning and leaving Saturday morning from San Jose.
My wish list includes seeing a volcano, hiking to sloths, and seeing a pretty beach!
It sounds like La Fortuna is great place to start but Arenal is dormant. Also, no sloths.
I’ve given up on Manuel Antonio as it sounds like the park is really just Costa Rica’s Times Square full of tourist with hustling guides & parking attendants.
Any suggestions at all for how I could see an active volcano or a pretty beach in my short 5 days?
Doesn’t it seem like a waste to spend my entire trip just in La Fortuna?
