Costa Rica in August while Pregnant

Jump to last reply

I am trying to plan a trip to Costa Rica in August with my husband. By way of background, we are 30 and 32, fairly active, but also enjoy downtime at the beach, and I will be approximately 17 weeks pregnant when we are scheduled to travel. I am not sure how I will be feeling, so I don't want to overexert myself, but we do want more than just a run of the mill beach vacation.

Would people be willing to comment on the following itinerary and resorts?

For the first part of the trip, we are planning on staying at the Si Como No Resort, Spa & Wildlife Refuge in Quepos, which overlooks the Pacific and Manuel Antonio National Park.

Day 1 (first full day): take a guided tour of Manuel Antonio National Park, spend some time relaxing at the beach.

Day 2: explore the town of Quepos, maybe relax at the beach, maybe mountain bike. At night, take a night walk in the resort’s wildlife refuge.

Day 3: more relaxing, maybe take a horse back ride through the jungle or on the beach.

Day 4: head to Arenal Valley in Costa Rica’s northern zone (approximately a five hour drive). We are thinking of staying at the Springs Resort & Spa, on a mountain ridge 1,000 feet above Arenal Valley, with a view of the volcano, just four miles to the north.

Day 5: relax in the hot springs, go fishing or horseback riding.

Day 6: take an easy hike on the lava fields at the base of the Arenal Volcano with a naturalist guide

Day 7: depart
