    Great information. I was thinking about Guatemala for the Fall, but I'm now thinking Costa Rica maybe more of an action packed trip. If you happen to know of places where you can rent dirt bikes, please let me know. Thanks.

    Very informative page! Wonder if you could give me more of your thoughts on the Barcelo Playa Tambor and the how to get Nature Air from San Jose? Considering this for our anniversary next year with our 2 teenagers in tow.
