Dominical Area for a Week??

Jump to last reply

I have researched Samara, Manuel Antonio, and Dominical for a family vacation. (2 adults, 2 kids, ages 8 and 11). MA seems to have a TON to do but I really like the idea of the great snorkeling and beaches in the Dominical area. I really, really like the description of Hacienda Baru and the all the activities we could do right there. It would take us a day to fly to San Jose and then 5 hours to transport to Dominical. So that's 4 days out for travel right there. That would leave us with Monday-Friday at Hacienda Baru. I am sort of thinking:
One day swimming/beach
One day snorkeling in the Beach Reserve
Zipline tour (not the whole day, but half?)
Sea Kayaking
Maybe the horse back ride to the Nauyaca Falls

The prices at HB are really cheap. I suppose we could taxi into Dominical for different restaurants if we wanted. I am thinking it might be best to take a van from San Jose to HB. But then there is getting to the beach...

So--is 5 days too long in the Domincal area? Should we rent a car in Dominical? I will work out a detailed itinerary and ask for specific feed back later. Oh--we are going the first week in April.
