Waterproof shoes or not?

I will be going on the Discover Costa Rica trip in May. I have been told by someone who has already been to take waterproof shoes but the Outdoor pursuits store have told me that they are too sweaty and don't dry out like the non-waterproof variety. Can anyone advise me ?

One of our team, Sharmil, travelled to Costa Rica and has this insight: On the nature trails you will be walking on paths and trails that may be wet because of local conditions. Good walking shoes which are water resistant are great as you can then enjoy the hikes and clean them easily if they get muddy.

The hikes vary in length from 2 hours to longer, the distances walked are not long but you will see lots of wildlife and natural habitat.
