Costa Rica or Maui with 3 year old

Jump to last reply

Hi, We are planning a trip mid November for about 15 days - my husband, 3 year old son & myself & are confused about where to go.
We are looking for some sightseeing, love nature & wildlife but am unsure if we would be able to do much with a 3 year old. We are beach people & are also looking to relax. If in Costa Rica I may be dissapointed not to be able to do so may nature related things due to my sons age & in my experience from other vacations with my son, its been exhausitng when I have tried to pack in too much sight seeing. This draws me to Maui. We have been to several Caribbean islands,been to Honolulu 7 years ago but havent been to any other Hawaiian island. We like luxury & are aware that maui is more expensive & a longer flight from nyc with my son. Its just that I dont want to come back exhausted. I would like opinions of similar folks with young children as to whether they recommend maui & delaying costa rica for a few years or take the plunge to costa rica.Thanks so much in advance.
