Costa Rica minus the drive

Jump to last reply

Wow, I have planned a lot of family trips and none have been as challenging as this Costa Rica one! There are so many places and I really don't even know where to start.
I'll be concise. Here is what am am looking for
-I want the beach and the rainforest without having to drive 4-5 hours from san José airport.
-I want a home to rent not a hotel room (a private pool would be a nice bonus)
-I want to be near waterfalls
-I want to be able to see monkeys from my patio
-I want to be able to walk to the beach
I have been looking into Dominical and everything about it seems perfect except that long drive from the airport. I don't know if I want to drive all that way after a long day of flights. Is there anywhere maybe only 1-2 hours from san José that is laid back with rain forest and beautiful beaches?
I would really appreciate any advice!
