Costa Rica - Itinerary input wanted, Osa plus what?

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to CR for our first time this July, my husband and I plus our 7 year old son. We are flying into San Jose, then flying down to PJ and will stay at a vacation rental about 10 minutes outside of Puerto Jiminez. Because we don't know how my son will do on this type of vacay and because he is an extremely picky eater, we chose a vacation rental instead of BdC or another ecolodge. Freedom and flexibility are key, as is the ability to head to the market. We will spend 5 nights on the Osa and will connect with local guides to go deeper in.

I've pored over the CR threads and am thinking of a couple of different areas for the second leg of our trip. I am looking at heading back to Atenas as a base, seeing that we could do many activities within a relatively short (1-2hr) drive (volcanoes, rainforest, river rafting, beach). We are also looking at MA or Dominical. We do love the beach and I am intrigued by the sea caves I've read about in Playa Ventanas near Uvita. We will have about another 4-5 nights where ever we choose to go. The birding and wildlife is important to us. I am interested in the weather on the Pacific coast at that time of year.

It is important to us to have accessibility to a grocery. We like to stay away from big resorts on the beach. We will fly back home out of San Jose.

Thank you in advance!
Kim
