Punta Arenas— 1 night
A major port city with a busy fish market, for most tourists Puntarenas represents little more than the launching point for ferries heading to the pleasant beaches of the Nicoya Peninsula.On the 2nd (Fri), admire the engineering at Isla Damas and then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. Here are some ideas for day two: view the masterpieces at Sarah's Gallery and then enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Blanca ( White Beach ).
