Hi all,

I'm looking at going to Costa Rica for my 30th birthday with a few mates, basically with the view of having a really different holiday and doing some activity type events.

Anyway the kind of things we are looking at would be sky diving (as a definite we want to do), rafting, bungee jumping etc... you probably get the picture.

Given it is a 30th birthday for 2 of us on the trip we also want to have some really good nights out when we are there, thinking great meals and then bars until the early morning!

And lastly given the fact the country seems so have so much natural beauty there we're obviously really interested in a couple great day trips into the jungle, or to see the volcanoes etc.

One of my mates is a teacher so we will be packing everything into a week in his half term. Any tips on what we should or shouldn't do, where we should be based on the island etc?

Or even whether somewhere else may be a better trip for what we are looking for - something different, fun, and exciting.

Any help much appreciated. Cheers

Another thing to add to your list is doing a jungle canopy zipline tour.

That was a highlight of our trip to the Jaco Beach area of CR.

Have fun! Smile

Paul is right! Zipline touring is what's making Costa Rica so hot right now. Two of my close friends have gone and come back raving about their experiences in Costa Rica. SkyTrek Monteverde is a good tour company to start with! Have fun!

Wikitravel has a great guide to Costa Rica. It is full of rich information including where to eat, where to sleep and things to do.
