HELP with Costa Rica Itinerary in a Hurry!

Jump to last reply

We have openings in Costa Rica but they are going fast and have limited dates at this late booking.
We as travelers have flexibility in February and are trying to align all schedules.

We would like to fly into San Jose and stay the first night nearby: Pura Vida maybe?
Then drive early morning to Osa Peninsula and stay at:

Bosque del Cabo for 3 nights
Lookout Lodge for 3 nights
Back to Pura Vida for 2 nights and see some of Arenal area.

Does this seem too tight? Other options:

1. Should we not stay a total of 6 nights in accomodations tha are similar in surroundings (Bosque has only garden cabinas available and would be surrounded by jungle similar to Lookout Lodge)?

2. We have the option of skipping Lookout Lodge and staying 2 nights in Cabina overlooking ocean and 2 nights in garden cabina surrounded by jungle and removed from main area by 7 minute walk over suspension bridge. We could start still at Pura Vida and finish their or nearby San Jose.

3. Also: Playa Nicuesa (also Osa) has openings that could allow us to stay the entire time in the same cabin without moving about

We could fly from San Jose to Jimenez but I like the idea of having a vehicle to get to some different tours during our stay.

Any suggestions or experiences we should include are welcome.
2 adults travelling, no children

Thank you! Have to confirm rooms within the day -- sorry for the last minute plea!
