I am travelling with a friend for 2 weeks to Costa Rica. We are women of a certain age and reasonably fit. We plan to spend 3 days at the Arenal Volcano for hiking, riding and hot springs. We want to zip line and do some beginners surfing. I like the beach, preferably white sands and good dipping rather than long swims, my friend a pool. We are travelling in March and would like suggestions of Pacific v Cartibean side. Happy to fly to Liberia or SAN Jose. I’ve seen this question asked before but the threads go back to 2012 so looking for more recent experiences. Thanks in anticipation of your views.
