Desperate for advice on two-week itinerary in Costa Rica this August

Jump to last reply

Our family (2 adults + 2 kids under 10) is taking our first trip abroad to Costa Rica this August. We want to make the most of the trip by balancing fun & adventure with exposure to a new culture. I have the basic outline of our two weeks in Costa Rica, but need help on how to knit together the whole itinerary.

We're currently "locked" into the major stops on our vacation: Manual Antonio and studying Spanish (+ volunteering) at Proyecto Asis. This is what we have planned so far:

Fly into San Jose (arrive late Monday: stay near airport)
4 nights at Manual Antonio National Park (Tulemar Bugalows)
2 nights (open - no reservations) - help fill this hole!
5 nights at Tree House Lodge, while taking Spanish lessons at Proyecto Asis
2 nights (open - no reservations) - help fill this hole!
Fly out of San Jose (late Monday afternoon)

I'd love any advice you can offer!
