Returning to CR with Toddlers, need advice on destinations

Jump to last reply

My husband and I travel internationally (and through the US) quite a bit. We have gone to CR twice previously in 2005 and 2008. It is the only place we loved so much that we returned. In 2005 we did Arenal, Montezuma and the Malpais area. In 2008, we did La Carolina and then returned to Malpais.

Since it has been 5 years, we are itching to return in 2014. However, this time we will have our kids (ages 5 and 4) with us. It will also be their first trip out of the US. We have been traveling internationally without them until now when we think they will really start enjoying it.

My question is, where should we go? We will most likely only have 8 or 9 days. One thought is to rent a house on the beach down in Santa Teresa. We just loved those beaches and would enjoy tam g the kids where we had so many memories. We've also been interested in Bosque and Drake's Bay. We aren't a resort family but know traveling with toddlers will be different than on our own.

Any advice?
