However, we walked a little further than most people and found a more secluded beach with some fun crabs and iguanas.

They're going to Monteverde, then Arenal, which is our route in reverse, then they will finish up in Tortuga, on the Caribbean coast, only accessible by boat. We tell them about the two places we've been, what we recommend, and what to miss, where to ...
