Several Part Question about My Trip to Costa Rica

1. My partner and I are planning an 8-day/7-night trip to Costa Rica to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Our plan is volcano + rain forest + beach. Any suggestions on specific places and must sees or must dos? 2. Any recommendations on the best travel agencies to work with to arrange the Costa Rica portions of our trip? 3. I've already heard from 4 companies and they've responded with essentially the same package - 3 nights at Arenal, 3 nights at Manuel Antonio, 1 extra night in either of those places or in San Jose. The prices are in the $3800-$4000 range except for one company which comes in way below the others at $2715 - am I potentially getting scammed if I go with this company?

Warm vacation destionations on a budget?

My wife and I are looking to go someplace warm this winter for 7-10 days and would like to see a lot of cool stuff and relax without breaking the bank. We were thinking Costa Rica, and have been looking at Caravan for tour packages ($1k, all inclusive). We would be flying out of Chicago. Does anyone have other recommendations for us to look into?
