Life gets in the way .......

Jump to last reply

So, after all the research, & the worry, and the debating, etc ....... it turns out my trip to CA is going to have to be a lot shorter & simpler than I had hoped.
Just came from the dentist & found out I need a bridge replaced & a tooth pulled ...... gonna cost me big time!!
So, instead of like 3 wks we're cutting it down to maybe 10 days.
I found a lovely little guest house run by an expat in Puerto Viejo. It's very reasonable, and it seems there are many excursions we can take fr there. It has beach & rainforest, we can see the turtles nest, take a trip to one of the volcanoes, kayak down the river perhaps into Panama, etc.
And flying from NYC to San Jose isn't too difficult, plus the trip from there to Puerto Viejo isn't too long a ride or too expensive.
At this point, it seems to be the best compromise, and get the most of what we want to do w/in the confines of a smaller budget,
But I must admit -- I am soooooo disappointed. And if some money unexpectedly comes my way between now & then, the extended trip is back on!
