My wife and I will be making our first trip to Costa Rica in a couple of months and are looking into ways of traveling around the country. Here is our itinerary:
Arrive in San Jose international airport at 1:30pm on March 20, 2014.
Spend the nights of March 20 and March 21 at the Orosi Lodge near Cartago.
Spend the nights of March 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26 in the Manuel Antonio area.
Spend the nights of March 27, 28, 29 and 30 at the La Carolina Lodge in San Miguel, Bijagua.
Spend the night of March 31, April 1, 2 and 3 in the Playa Samara area.
Spend the night of April 4 in the San Jose area.
So...here are our travel needs:
March 20 - one-way from San Jose International Airport to the Orosi Lodge, leaving around 3:00pm
March 22 - one-way from Orosi Lodge to the Manuel Antonio area, leaving around mid-morning
March 27 - one-way from Manuel Antonio to the La Carolina Lodge, leaving around mid-morning
March 31 - one-way from the La Carolina Lodge to the Playa Samara area, leaving around mid-morning
April 4 - one-way from the Playa Samara area to San Jose, leaving in mid-afternoon
We'd like to keep our costs as reasonable as possible, so we are willing to take public transportation in any cases where it makes more sense to do so.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions for us? We really appreciate it!
