We are a family of 5(2 adults, 3 children 6, 10,12) and were wondering how long to spend in this area? We are in Costa Rica for 8 nights (arriving late on first night SJO) and would like to split our time between only 2 areas (MA?) We are thinking of a vacation home rental for 4-5 nights (pick-up at airport) and then heading to the pacific coast for a couple of days and back to Alajuela (to the vacation rental) for a couple of nights before we leave EARLY (private delivery to airport from home). Is there enough to see and do for this period, or should we stay longer in MA? Any suggestions would be must helpful!!
