Early planning stages of CR Family vacation - need some help!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I hoping to get some advice on a potential trip for this summer. I'm in the very early planning stages, and not even sure if we'll be going to Costa Rica yet or not. So, if we do go, this would be the third trip for the kids and our fourth trip and I'd like to visit a different area. For this trip, my husband would like to pick one destination and stay put. He's fine with some excursions, but with the exception of maybe the first and last night - he doesn't want to move around the country as we've done on our past trips. And this time we'd like a beach destination. I'd be extremely happy with settling at Bosque del Cabo, but that doesn't quite fit the bill for the beach destination. The kids will be 11 and 13 so they will be looking for a bit of adventure and will also be comparing this trip to the past ones we've taken, which have been amazing. In the past we've already been to: Tortuguero, Arenal (3x), Manuel Antonio, Bosque del Cabo (2x), Peace Lodge, and various hotels in between.

I'm not sure if the Caribbean is what we're looking for? Or if it's the Pacific beaches? Or would Dominical be the right area? It seems that Arenal, Osa, Manuel Antonio are the most popular areas. It seems that there are so many beach areas closer to the Liberia airport, but they aren't often discussed here, so I don't know much about them. We probably would go for 7-10 days.

Plan B - back to Riviera Maya! That's always easy and a hit with the kids and husband!
