Me and my girlfriend will be in Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua during the month of May.
We want a propper nature experience over there and allready put our minds on Nicaragua (should be realy diverse and cheaper).
Our ideal adventure: spending a couple of days in the rain forest, with as less as possible other tourists, with an English speaking skillfull guide, sleaping in huts with the Indians, learning some of their culture and how to survive and seeing heaps of animals (this is a must!). Of course, this is the ideal trip, but we'd appreciate any attribution to help us achieving at least a couple of those whishes :-)
We haven't prepared a thing yet, so any advise is welcome!
Um, are you sure you're not thinking of the amazon? lol. I have not heard of people living with indians in CA. Nor scores of animals. But hey, it could be true.
I do not have a lot of tourist information other than look up a place called Monte Verde, a very cool little town in Costa Rica with all kinds of stuff. I'm not sure all of it but some kind of animal walk. A cool cafe built in a tree. Zip lines.. etc. I don't travel for tourism, so wasn't really all my thing. Lots of tourists... but had a cool vibe.
You should try to pick up some Spanish before your trip. It's quite easy and adds a lot to the experience.
Hope you have a great time!
Thanks for the reply, we'll check out Monteverde though the touristy stuff isn't really our thing either. But we'll have a look into it!
