Anyone been to Cosa Rica?

We need a break from the cold and have decided to taker a trip to Costa Rica and stay a week at the La Foresta Nature resort situated in side of the Manuel Antonio National Park. It looks as there will be many bugs, birds and other critters to shoot, so I might even have something for the WCU when I get back.

Has anyone been to the area and have advce? I know the humidty was so bad for the few hours we were in Panama that I couldn't get a shot off.

My gear will be as follows

E5, E 3, 50-200, 7-14, 50mm, 35mm, EC 20, EC 1.4, ring flash, FRF and a FL50r and a mono pod. I'm still considering the 12-60 and FE but have to watch the weight as my 50 year old back doesn't exactly like long periods of stress and other things have to go in the back pack like chargers, batteries, a netbook, etc.

Any advice as to safety, renting a car/ GPS, shooting at night in the rain forest, whatever will be appreciated.
