La Fortuna or Monteverde are good for jungle. Manuel Antonio is good for beaches.

With two weeks in Costa Rica you can visit 3 to 4 destinations and have more time soak in the tropical vibes.

Two Weeks in Costa Rica

There are two international airports in Costa Rica.  The San Jose Airport is centrally located and Liberia Airport is in the northwest corner of the country.
