What tips can you offer someone interested in traveling to this destination?
This is really not a beach destination so if you plan to just sit at the beach all day, everyday, this may not be the best destination for you. You can split your stay between the beach and the countryside which would give you the best of both worlds. If you stay at a beach resort make sure to take excursions off the property to see the true Costa Rica. Unless you are really adventurous do not rent a car, the road system is not like ours!
Is this destination best for families, couples, etc?
This destination is great for tweens to adults.
