not getting much feedback from the specific location..
A little background - My husband has been to CR several times to various spots for surf, I have been to Mal Pais, Montezuma, Arenal, Nosara and have a great uncle who lives in San Jose, so have visited there as well. We've rented cars, taken the Punteranas Ferry, hiked waterfalls, zip-lined, etc.. we love being active and exploring.
We just had a baby boy and were looking to plan our first family vacation November 2013 and have always wanted to go to the OP. Don't know much about this side of CR.
With that said it seems like it would be easiest to take the connecting flight from SJ rather than drive. can you rent a car once you are there? do you need to? Not sure how this area is laid out...
Can anyone recommend which area in OP to stay in? from a few other forum questions I have been reading I feel like we would like to be on the beach/or at least very close, but close to things to do, not completely isolated. We are in shape, a 5-10 minute walk to places is fine.
A hotel/resort that is safe, has excellent food and will allow/accommodate an 11 month old?
We've never done an all inclusive in CR, but this is our 1st time traveling with a child and I am wondering if it would make things easier. is there one people recommend?
Interests would be fishing and maybe some surfing (probably wont be traveling with a board this time around though, so would need to rent).
I was reading about a night tour?Snorkeling Cano Island is an excellent tour? maybe a spa...would love to see wildlife as well.
Again first time traveling with a child, so we are trying to keep that in mind.
thanks so much in advance!
