Perhaps you should choose a small B&B in the Central Valley as a base
to work from. Check www.costaricainnkeepers.com (Northwest)for
A suggestion is Casa Vela B&B, near Hospital Mexico in La Uruca,
(tel. 232 4406 - www.casavela.net) which has a suitable location from
where to explore the area. The owners, Isabel and Jose Luis, are
Ticos and are reputed to go out of their ways to help guests. Their
B&B is in a quiet, safe neighbourhood.
You can easily reach and explore areas between Heredia and Cartago
from this location and get a feel of differences in climate (yes,
temperatures are quite different from one end to the other !),
and "climate" (population, services, etc.)
Enjoy your "hunting" !
