Packing light for 9 day family trip to Costa Rica - advice needed please!

Jump to last reply

We're heading down for our first trip to Costa Rica on 3/30, staying for nine days. We'll be in San Jose for 2 days, then up to Heredia for two or three days, then the rest of our time will be down in Manuel Antonio. We'll be flying Sansa from San Jose to Quepos, and back, so we'll need to make sure we pack lightly to make the 30 pound weight limit.

So... my question is this: how can we best pack for a family of four (with kids ages 7 and 9)? We've done tons of travel, but never with this weight restriction. Any particular pack you would buy? Any secrets to making the most of your space?

Any and all advice is much appreciated. Thank you!!!
