The laid back beachfront town of Dominical has been transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a surfer haunt of some repute.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour. On the next day, stroll through Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary and then look for gifts at Mama Toucan's Natural and Organic Food Store.

Plan my trip to Dominical with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

San Jose to Dominical is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can go by car to Jaco.
