Costa Rica with the In-Laws in January

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone my wife and I are starting to plan a trip with her parents to Costa Rica in early January (possibly late December - still in the air) and I am looking for suggested itineraries as I really don't know much about Costa Rica and always thinks its best to get ideas from people who have actually been to the place you are going.

We are thinking of flying from California on a Thursday and arriving back home on a Monday night - is that enough time or should we shoot for a full week?

About Us - My wife and myself are in our early 30s, somewhat active (we like going for hikes and being outside) and have done a lot of traveling including backpacking through South America. We know a little Spanish although we are pretty rusty. We really enjoy good food and restaurants, beaches, all things nature and just kicking back and relaxing.

The In-Laws - both in their mid-50s and fit for their age. Experienced travelers who prefer staying in nicer luxury or boutique accommodations. They also enjoy nature and a little adventure, although my mother-in-law is scared of heights (so no zip-lining unfortunately :(. They LOVE seafood, so if you know of any good seafood restaurants please don't hold back.

In summary I think what we are really looking for is some good beach time, to see some nature highlights like the volcanoes I have heard about, eat at some of the nicer restaurants and stay at the more comfortable places. We have used airbnb in a number of countries and are open to that in addition to more traditional hotels. We would also be open to tours and excursions if you have any recommendations for cool things to do or things not to miss.

If you need any more info please let me know and thank you in advance for any and all advice!
