We are planning our first trip to costa rica, and are looking at a vacation rental in Uvita or Tamarindo for our family trip (6 adults)- We are hoping to see lots of wildlife and nature, go rafting, and get surfing lessons or just body surf – bar scenes are not important, but some restaurants not too far away would be nice and we’d like to minimize long drives (we plan to rent a car) when possible, while seeing and doing as much as we can.
Any advice about which region might be a better fit for us? Thanks!
Thank you! This is great information, and your articles and site give me a real sense of different areas, more so than anything else I’ve read yet! Thanks for the car rental discount – we are definitely going to check that out too.
