Costa Rica - Dominical/Uvita in September with 2 yr old

Jump to last reply

My husband & I are planning to take a 3-4 week vacation with our daughter in September 2014 (she will be 2.5 yrs old). We've had a particularly stressful year and want to have a nice, relaxing time together as a family and live the 'pura vida' lifestyle.

We have been to Costa Rica twice before and loved it and would like to visit again. We went to Puerto Viejo & Arenal in 2005 and Santa Teresa in 2011 and loved both. We are looking for the same kind of laid back surf/beach town experience this time around. We considered revisiting Puerto Viejo but the recent reports of armed robberies is deterring us. I would go to Santa Teresa again but I've heard that the main road is often flooded in Sept/Oct and the town is basically inaccessible.

From what I've read online, it sounds like the Dominical/Uvita area isn't as hard hit by the rain in September. Does anyone have any experience with this? We don't mind the afternoon rains or even if there are a few rainy days in a row but are more concerned with safety and accessibility of the roads and if local shops and restaurants will be open.

Alternatively, any other suggestions of places to spend our restorative month? As I mentioned, we are looking for a laid back beach vacation - no resorts and not too touristy. We love the scenery and wildlife of CR and safety with a small child is a priority. Also prefer a somewhat direct trip, no farther than Caribbean or Central America.

Thanks for all input & advice!
