Looking for Suggestions of Where to Go in Costa Rica

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

In less than two weeks I’m heading to Costa Rica with five of my 10 close college friends. Eight of us took a trip to Fort Lauderdale two years ago after graduating and have wanted to explore another place together. The trip means a lot to me especially because I live so far away from my college friends, most of whom live in the Boston area.

We’re flying into San Jose and then taking a bus to Tamarindo, where one of our friends is teaching for the summer. Seeing as I’ve never been to Costa Rica before, I’m looking for recommendations of places to go, sights to see, things to do. We hope to travel outside of Tamarindo to the extent that we can and explore some less toursity areas. Any suggestions?
