Costa Rica during Easter week?

Jump to last reply

My husband, 2 daughters (ages 11 & 13) and I are considering a trip to Costa Rica in the spring of 2015. For work and school reasons, we would have to go during Easter week and I'm beginning to wonder if it is worth it. Of course, prices are peak but is it also so crowded and full of traffic that it would change the experience? Or if we go, what would be the best days? Easter is April 5th and we could go as early as Thursday, March 26th, and could stay as late as April 6th. Or we could do a Thurs-Thurs and leave before Easter weekend. We have flexibility within that window of time.

Since it is our first trip there, we are planning on splitting our time between Manuel Antonio and Arenal. It seems to make sense to fly to San Jose but we could do Liberia. We are most excited about seeing animals.

Thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
