Have you considered the Coribici raft ??? It was about an hour fron the ship.. nice ride throuth the contry side the raft excursion was fun... the guide would let it get as wild as the passengers wanted.. we were a conservative group.. but some were splashing and gettting crazy.. the scenery was beautiful.. we had a lunch at a resort (very nice) and had the use of their pool.. refreshing because it was pretty hot there. It seemed to be a good overview of Costa Rica although we didn't see the volcano... but if you have seen one volcano... you have seen them all! HAVE A GREAT TRIP!
