Suggested Itinerary for One Week Trip with Young Kids

Jump to last reply

Hi. We have flights booked for a week in April to Costa Rica but that is about all so far. I have been doing tons of online research and have found this site to be the most useful. Still, i haven't been able to put together an itinerary to meet the needs of my young kids (boys, 4-7) that doesn't involve that much travel by car. Ideally, it seems we would like to do Arenal and then drive up to MA but I just can't imagine driving with them for the 5 hours it seems to take to get from Arenal to MA and then the 3 hours back to San Jose. If we do the drive, should we drive ourselves or hire a driver as some have suggested? Any input on Los Lagos, Lost Iguana, Si Como No, La Miraposa hotels (good for kids)? Our vacations consist mostly of trips to visit family around the U.S. so this is a departure for us and we'd like to make it really special for the whole family. Thanks for any input.
