Fine tuning our Caribbean travels in CR

Jump to last reply

After months of reading & planning, we've decided on the following itinerary. But please feel free to make other suggestions if the trip would flow better. We'll be spending a wk in the Florida Keys before arriving at SJO on Jan 21. We'll opt for the non stop Lasca flight which will get us there at 9:28am. We were hoping to fly to Tortuguero that day but it appears to only have flights at 6am so we'll opt for Orquideas Inn first day. Then 2 nts at Laguna Lodge, return on the bus, rent a car & head to Puerto Viejo & spend 4 nts at Pachamama & 2nt Banana Azul. While there we plan to do the aerial tram, chocolate tour, Bri Bri village & hopefully some snorkeling & diving if it looks promising. Also plan to visit Gandoca Manzanillo park, animal rescue center & take time to listen to the wild jungle & enjoy our surrounding. On the way back we plan to raft the Pacaure river for a day, spend the night at Tirimbina or maybe Selva Verde, visit Poas volcano & waterfall & the Sarapiqui area before returning to SJ. We've debated on the car so need feedback whether to rent or not. We were in CR 3 yrs ago & did MA, Arenal & Guanacaste so this time we want to stay in one place longer & just enjoy the jungle. We'll have at least 10-12 days to visit the area. Always appreciate your forum & feedback.
