1st Time Costa Rica w/Kids - 9 Days - Arenal & Osa?

Jump to last reply

This is my first time posting on the forum ... and going to Costa Rica! I've read so much of what has been posted already - incredible! Just curious about your thoughts - we are going to Costa Rica for the first time in April - husband, two boys (7 and 9) and me. We love the outdoors, animals, but also want to get a sense of the place (I know 9 days isn't enough)! Curious if people have thoughts about a. good airport hotel that isn't too pricey, b. is Arenal a good choice if the rest of the trip is in Osa, and is it too out of the way given this possible itinerary (below) - should we go somewhere else, instead, to get a slightly broader picture of CR? And, is c. Is 2 nights enough in Arenal or could we get away with 1 (possibly ideal), allowing us to then spend more time in Osa?

1 – Fly in
2 – Drive to / Overnight Arenal
3 – Overnight Arenal
4 – Drive back to San Jose / Fly to Osa
5 – Osa
6 – Osa
7 – Osa
8 - Fly back to San Jose / SPA night (Xandari?)
9 - Fly out

THANK YOU!!!!
