Critique My Time in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

In May I spent nearly 2 weeks setting my alarm clock for 5am (when the Alaska Partners desk opens) to try to secure my family of 4 our airfare for Costa Rica using my air miles. Well, I am very happy to report that my diligence paid off; my air mileage account is empty, but my heart is full. My husband and I will get to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in Costa Rica with our 2 daughters (then ages 6 and 3.75)! If you'd be so kind as to look over and critique how and where I have us spending our time, I would love the feedback.

Sat. March 30th – depart on red-eye flight.

Sun, March 31st - arrive Costa Rica 10:55am - drive to Arenal (approx. 3.25 hrs. drive) - Stay at Hotel El Silencio del Campo

Mon. April 1st - Proyecto Asis, Hot Springs

Tues. April 2nd – Hike or Horseback ride to La Fortuna Waterfall

Wed. April 3rd – Snake Museum, Drive to Tenorio National Park (approx. 1.5 – 2hrs.) - Stay at La Carolina Lodge

Thurs. April 4th – Rio Celeste Hike

Fri. April 5th – Horseback Ride, Drive to Playa Samara (approx. 2.5 - 3hrs.) - Stay at The Hideaway Hotel

Sat. April 6th - Ziplining

Sun. April 7th - Surfing and Beach Day

Mon. April 8th – Surfing and Beach Day

Tues. April 9th – Drive to San Jose (approx. 4 1/2 hr. drive) - Stay at Casa Bella Rita

Wed. April 10th – Poas Volcano in a.m.
Depart San Jose 5:05p.m.

Is there a "must see" in the Samara area that I just can't miss that I need to make time for? Any other suggestions for things to do with the children in mind? Thanks in advance.
