We've booked our honeymoon for Costa Rica (Puerto Viejo/Playa Chiquita area) in September for a total of twelve days. We like how laid back and rustic the area sounds. Everything I've read tells us we'll have quite the weather, we can't wait.
So I'm basically looking for recommendations on things to do on the southern Caribbean coast, including advice on a day trip to Bocas del Toro (worth it?). We like wildlife (jaguar rescue centre?), hiking, kayaking, rappelling, rock climbing, that sort of stuff. We'll still take some lazy days in the hammock, but we don't want to pay for a ton excursions either. Anywhere we can rent kayaks ourselves, hiking trails, all that would be very helpful!
What kind of footwear would you recommend for moderate hiking? I am getting conflicting info on whether the rainfall is significant enough in September to warrant full on waterproof hiking boots.
How is the humidity this time of year? I believe it will affect our packing list.
