Where go with preteens in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

This is a really loaded question but here goes: we have decided to go to Costa Rica for Christmas break this year -- Dec 21- Jan2, 13 days including travel time to and from California. "We" are my husband and I (both active 48 year olds) and our two pre-teen (10 & 12) daughters. We are a very outdoorsy family and want to see the natural wonders of Costa Rica as well as do the Zip-line things in the Canopy and a 1/2 day or day rafting trip (class 1-3 only:). I am seeking suggestions for itineraries, i.e. where should we go, as well as for accomodations. Ideally, we don't want to be "on the run," but would prefer to stay at 2-3 different places and use them as "base camps" for our daily excursions. We are Lonely Planet type folks -- we don't want to totally rough it but we don't need fancy accomodations and do want to immerse ourselves in local culture. And, travelling as a family, we do have some limitations on accomodations I realize. This is the very beginning of my research (I'm off the local library now), so if you can point me in the right direction that would be great:) Thanks so much and I look forward to your posts:).
