Taghrid and I are considering making a two week Costa Rica trip sometime
next summer. We've been looking at possible itineraries for that trip, and
I ran across some companies that will customize itineraries, make hotel &
car reservations, etc. One of those companies (kimkim,com), has responded
with the following suggested itinerary (we specified birding and scuba
diving as the two objectives of the trip). Never having visited Costa Rica,
we're looking for some advice/opinions from folks who may have visited
Costa Rica (especially, in July) on this suggested itinerary.
