Costa Rica itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am in need of some travel advice for an early June trip to Costa Rica. I will be traveling with my kids (7 yr old girl and 5 yr old boy) and husband. I have been to CR once before and went to Manuel Antonia, La Pez, and Tabacon Hot Springs. I have always wanted to visit the Osa area and hoped to pursue for this trip - especially since my son is a huge animal lover!

What are opinions on staying at Bosque del Cabo or Lapa Rios for 4 nights? Iguana lodge 4 nights? And Arenal area 2 nights? Pros/cons of Bosque versus Lapa Rios with 7 and 5 year old kids? And how would I travel to Arenal from osa? We would most likely fly into San Jose and take the Sansa/nature air flight into PR. Ideally would not like to rent car - perhaps use a driving service/taxi? But would like it to be cost effective.

Overall goal of the trip is to see lots of animals, enjoy nice hikes, and enable the kids to have some ocean time.

Thanks for any advice and recommendations you can provide!!!
