How many days should I stay in Costa Rica?

How many days should I stay in Costa Rica?
22 months ago, February 5th 2018 No: 1 Msg: #203957  
Next on my bucket list is to travel to Costa Rica for a few days but spending for the regular fare and my own accommodations is a tad expensive for me. Right now, I’m trying to figure out how long I should be staying mostly because of budget restraints. I’ve heard that tour options are a great way to save money on international travel. I have a cousin who attended an international romance tour, and he told me that it was significantly cheaper that paying for the entire thing himself.

I’m considering looking into a travel agency to help me arrange this trip. But now my concern is, how many days should I stay in Costa Rica? My cousin told me that 5 days was enough to see what needs to be seen, but I have the feeling that I might want to extend my stay a bit longer. I have the option to extend my stay, but I need some opinions on how many days exactly is enough for me to enjoy and tour around the beautiful country without wasting any money. Any advice?

This depends on what kind of traveler you are and how much you want to see.I do not like to rush. I enjoy meeting the local people. Costa Rica is a lovely country and I would not want to rush through it. I spent two weeks there and wished I had spent four weeks.

I'm a scuba diver so we went scuba diving.
We went zip lining.
We went house back riding, soak in mud baths, road down a giant slide through the jungle.
We went to a bull fight.

If you want to see Costa Rica I would recommend a minimum of two weeks. Reply to this
