Need advise for fun day trips and activities for teen boys (17 & 14) during 5 day trip to Gulf of Papagayo. We'll be staying at Andaz. I am aware of the hotel's amenities and activities but want to know what there is to see and do beyond the hotel. We will have spent 3 days at Arenal before arriving to Andaz. I've seen several tour operators offer tours to cloud forests, national parks , fishing/snorkeling, etc.. Which tours have you done and loved? Did you rent a car or hire guides?
Also looking for restaurant recommendations near the hotel or surrounding beaches/towns. We like everything from hole in the wall to upscale and a wide variety of cuisines.
