Hi all. We are heading down to CR, flying in and out of Liberia, the 1st through the 13th. We have 2 daughters, ages 3 and 6. As it stands right now, we have reserved a condo in Playa Famingo for a week, and have 2 nights reserved at Los Lagos Resort in Arenal after that. We still have 3 nights unspoken for. We will have a car.
My question is with our young daughters, should we do an itinerary like this, doing day trips on our own and trying to find a couple of guided tours or do we bag this whole itinerary and splurge for a planned trip with a company where we just show up. I'm not sure if our girls are old enough for that to be a viable option, but trying to figure out what to do is stressing me out!!
If you think we should do Flamingo, etc. on our own, can you suggest some day trips or destinations we should plan on? I've sort of ruled out Monteverde based on some suggestions due to weather, packing, and young kids. Thanks so much for any advice.
