What a nice itinerary! Two great locations--you'll have a wonderful time. Cool that you can raft the Pacuare out of PV on your way back to SJO. I was going to suggest you return by that route anyway--very scenic.

On the way to PV, you might enjoy stopping at Parque Nacional Cahuita--very nice park with lots of wildlife right on the beach. Also a good place for lunch at Miss Edith's (she's slower than the 7 year itch, but good) or Cha Cha Cha.

Once in PV (have I mentioned this to you on another post?) you might think about calling Abel Bustamante, who lives in Manzanillo (506 759 90 43). He is a wonderful guide, inexpensive, and will take you into primary forest, show you SO much (he's a natural teacher), or even deeper into Gandoca/Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge to view the dolphins further south offshore. Anything you're interested in in the area, he can make it better. And a super nice guy.

Have a great time--when are you leaving?

We are leaving on Feb. 17 and counting the minutes.

We are using the same driver for the second year in a row.
It took some research to find the rafting company that offers the pick up and drop off in both locations. For a full day of rafting and tranfer from PV to SJO is $95 per person. Not bad considering to get a ride from SJO Airport to Puerto Viejo, the cost will be $160.

RAL -- Can you please post back about the rafting experience you have from PV to SJO? We are considering the same trip from SJO to PV in May.

Thanks RHR. Well, it looks like they have a 12 year old age minimum and I'm taking my 10 year old daughter. It looks like we'll be doing a "float" instead of the rapids this time around!
