Hi experts, We are arriving in Liberia on a Saturday and will be in this area (at the Springs) until Wed, when we are off to Manuel Antonio. We are taking private transport so we will not have a car at our disposal. Here is what I have sketched after reading the chapter in my guidebook and looking on trip advisor. Please give me any feedback or suggestions...
day 1: resort and hot springs (knowing we will not arrive until around 4)
day : hanging bridges and volcano hike
day 3: canyoneering and or whitewater or a combo of the 2 (offered by Wave Expeditions, deSafio, and Pure Trek.
day 4: ??
day 5: off to manuel antonio
My questions are:
*I have a blank ay right now. Is the above appropriately blocked out?
*What am I missing that I should insert on day 4?
What is the best way to get to the volcano and or the hanging bridges. Taxi? or is better to book a tour through Mistico to get transportation and can I add on the volcano from that tour?
*We have done class 2 and 3 whitewater rafting in Montana. Should we do whitewater rafting or waterfall canyoneering or the combination (knowing the only option is class 2/3 if we choose that route).
*Is it better to book these tours through the hotel or my travel agent or do it on my own?
*We are traveling with our son, who is peanut and treenut allergic. I would appreciate any suggestions for restaurants or anything we should avoid due to his allergies. He has had 6 years of Spanish in middle school and high school and one in college, yet I am still nervous about eating in another country where a hospital might not be nearby).
*Are these good choices for this area given that I am heading to Manuel Antonio after (and haven't even started planning that leg of the trip yet).
Many thanks for any and all advice!
