- Highlights of Costa Rica, 9 in our group, all got on well, fab tour guide Hector, so informative, friendly, witty, till the end a professional, always had the binoculars & telescope at the ready. Went to La Fortuna, too foggy to see volcano & too wet to walk, on to Monteverdi, again very wet (I went the end of the rainy season, but just had the volcano 2 days before) the hot springs in the evening were a highlight 5 springs getting hotter & hotter & 2 jacuzzis. Went to rain, cloud & transitional forests, amazing flora & fauna. On to a Manuel Antonia, loved the hotel, the closeness to the national park, loved it here, our 1st & only really sunny day, did the walk & got to the beach where white faced monkeys, raccoons were everywhere, went to quieter beach, beautiful, swam, saw flying fish, pelicans, magical, best day, back to San Jose, nothing special here, maybe the National Theatre, the square & gold museum.
