4th trip: 11 days w/teens; itinerary for Osa, Rio Celeste/Tenorio, Arenal

Jump to last reply

This is our 4th family trip to Costa Rica. We are planning on leaving June 20. We are a family of 4 with twin 16-year old boys who like activity. The only repeat destination from prior trips is Arenal; previously we have been to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, Punta Uva, Manuel Antonio, Rafiki Safari, Domincal, Tortuguero, and Arenal. Any comments on activities in the areas we are visiting, drive times, weather and road conditions in June (we have only been in dry season before), lodging choices, restaurants, etc. are welcome. I am most uncertain about the plans around Cano Negro. Staying near Cano Negro means we have one more hotel to change to, but I thought it might be good to stay near there to visit Cano Negro first thing in the a.m. rather than on a day trip from Arenal or La Carolina. Also, does 4 nights at BdC sound good? This is tops on my list for next visit to CR, but will it be good for teenagers?

Day 1-arrive on redeye and fly to Puerto Jiminez; stay at Bosque del Cabo
Day 2-Waterfall rapelling and Tree Climbing
Day 3-Hiking BdC grouns, surfing and or boogie boarding
Day 4-Activity near BdC-Animal sanctuary, other?
Day 5-9:30 flight to San Jose, pick up rental car and drive to either La Carolina Lodge or Celeste Mountain lodge. Horseback riding in the afternoon.
Day 6-Hike to Rio Celeste
Day 7-Raft Tenorio River; Drive to Hotel De Campo near Cano Negro
Day 8-Cano Negro tour; drive to Arenal and stay at Lost Iguana
Day 9-Sky Trek zipline, visit LaFortuna, Ecotermalas
Day 10-Volcano, or other activity in a.m.; drive back to Las Orquideas
Day 11-early a.m. flight back to US

Thank you for ideas and advice!
