Costa Rica Itinerary & Renewing our Wedding Vows!

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am just beginning (with much excitement) the initial planning stages of our trip to Costa Rica which will take place late March-beginning of April 2013. I have come to my fellow Fodorites in help in planning out my itinerary so early because I'll be using air miles for our plane tickets and will need to "purchase" them exactly 330 days before departure to ensure us seats, so I've got to be for sure where we'll be spending our time so I choose the right airports. Sooo, on to the questions.

My husband, myself and our two daughters who will then be 6 and 3.5 years old will be making the trip. This will be my husband and I's 2nd trip to CR, our girl's 1st. So far I see us having about 9-10 days to play with. I plan on flying into San Jose, renting a car, and moving on to Arenal to stay at Leaves and Lizards for 3 nights, then on to Manuel Antontio to stay at La Posada Private Jungle Bungalows for 3-4 nights (I choose both based on their excellent reviews on Tripadvisor). I can either extend our stays at either or both of these locations, or should I try to sneak in another destination for us to cover with our remaining days? And if so, where?

Also, it will be my husband and I's 10th wedding anniversary, and we would like to renew of wedding vows (we've kind of made a promise to renew ours vows every 5 years). Our original wedding was in St. John, USVI on the beach, and our 5 yr. was in Vegas with Elvis officiating, so now that I have this amazing country of Costa Rica, where should I renew them? We don't need any big to-do, a very simple ceremony with our girls in a quiet corner of the world is all we need. Any ideas for us here?

Thanks in advance for your thoughtful responses!
