No matter where you are in Costa Rica there are always dozens of fun and interesting things to see and do. Take a canopy tour, go for a hike in a beautiful National Park, try white water rafting, or spend an evening at the casino and disco. You may want to spend a day at the hot springs and spa, ride horses on a remote beach, read a good book in your hammock overlooking the ocean, have a few Margaritas and watch a beautiful sunset, Costa Rica has it all.
