My husband and I would like to do both a rafting trip and a zip line trip while we visit CR. We will be visiting both La Fortuna and MA. Would you recommend we plan those activities at one place rather than another? We will be visiting for 9 days at the end of Feb. If that makes a difference. Thank you!

What about between La Fortuna and Monteverde for zip lining?

Jenn and Matt Staff replied 5 years ago

Both are good, but if we had to pick, probably Monteverde because it is really cool to zip line through the cloud forest.

Thank you for the response that is very helpful. Considering we will be traveling at the end of February would it be best to book trips in advance or would we be ok to wait until we arrive to book. I have heard that sometimes the folks at the hotels and hostels are able to get you a cheaper rate than online.

If there is just two of you, you can probably wait to book most activities until you get here. Keep in mind though that some tours (ones that are very popular or limited in numbers) do get booked in advance. One that comes to mind is the Protecto Asis wildlife tour near La Fortuna. But the ones you mentioned, zip-lining and rafting, should be fine since there are so many companies to choose from. If you want more help, we do offer travel planning assistance and could help you decide on specific tour operators, etc. There’s more info on our Itinerary Help page: https://www.twoweeksincostarica.com/itinerary-help/.
