question Planning a trip to Costa Rica
I'm trying to plan a trip to Costa Rica. If anyone has done this recently, I'm looking for some advice.

First, I hope to not simply pay an outfitter to run the whole trip. I'm familiar with companies like Endless River Adventures, but would like to put this trip together on my own if it's possible.

Biggest issue now is whether we rent boats, take our own boats and return with them, or take boats and sell them.

Has anyone travelled with a kayak lately? I understand airlines are going to be expensive or may even prohibit checking kayaks. So if there are specific airlines which are better; or if anyone has shipped using a freight carrier, I'd appreciate more information about that.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice anyone has to offer.
