Itinerary

I spent 11 days and did 3 destinations: Manuel Antonio, La Fortuna and Monteverde. Loved all.

Things to Do

Manuel Antonio is very beautiful, but beware of all the people trying to get you to park in their lots. It's very confusing because they will walk into the road and make you think they are the last available parking lot even if they aren't. The high through the park was one of my favorites. I got some awesome drone footage while I was there. La fortuna was a really and beautiful but had SO MANY stairs to climb up after you get to the bottom. Make sure you can climb stairs without assistance.

Safety

I felt safe in every place I went.

Recommendations

If you are on a budget, skip the car rental. Way too expensive. Getting around is super easy via shared shuttles (i.e. Interbus), regular bus and the occasional Uber. For budget accommodation Selina hostels are good. Costa Rica is so much more than beaches - it's more about the flora and fauna. Amazing scenery and wildlife.
