Some included activities such as the hikes in the Monteverde Cloud Forest and Manuel Antonio NP can be quite strenuous.
The tropical climate of Central America means conditions can be really hot and humid. Always carry plenty of water with you and stay hydrated, especially on walking tours.
Try to learn as many Spanish words as you can. Locals are very friendly, but also shy, so you'll need to make plenty of effort to break the ice. Attempting to communicate in Spanish is a great way of showing you care.

1) If you engage in optional activities every day, as we did, the pace can be pretty fast, with little down time. 2) Having good guides for the optional activities were very important to seeing wildlife, which were otherwise hard to spot due to dense vegetation and cryptic behavior or coloration. 3) In retrospect, I should've opted out of a guided tour at the last minute because the weather turned bad and we paid a lot to walk in the rain and see very little. Yet I felt pressure to do the tour because I'd made the commitment the day before. 4) Consider doing an optional activity with the locals, lest you miss the opportunity for interaction and cultural exposure. 5) Also important to budget in quite a bit more for optional activities.
