I have never been to Punta Islita(heard good things about it), but I been to many other places in CR, all of them are amazing and beautiful. This country is very welcoming and kind to tourists, smiling people ready to help and assist. My special point is a hotel located in a legend like hidden valley, on the road between San Ramon and La Fortuna. The name of this place is Lands in Love. The cloud forest around is amazing, many animals and birds, and the whole atmosphere is relaxing. We spent 1 night there and would have liked to stay more but already had reservation in another place in La Fortuna. We did canopy there (lots of fun, great view of the forest) and liked it very much. It is a place which represents the true cloud forest wildlife of Costa Rica, with all the birds, butterflies and running water around. The hotel itself is beautifully built and decorated, with all the modern commodities (29” cable TV, fast wireless internet, mini bar and coffee maker). The staff is perfect, took care of our every need, and the food was delicious with many different option to choose from. If you around that area and would like some mountain and forest experience- try them out.
Have fun!

Can anyone give me some information on Rincon de la vieja and jaco?

Rincon de la Vieja is a volcano in the North of Guanacaste (Costa Rica), whereas Jaco is a beach resort on the Pacific coast. The RdlV park is worthwhile visiting for its termal springs, beautiful nature and vistas. If you don't have obligations to go to Jaco, don't go there. Costa Rica has plenty of other more attractive beaches. But it all depends on what you are looking for.
