Our family of 4 (2 teens) will be in CR for 9 days at the end of November. We arrive in SJ in the am and hope to get an afternoon flight on Sansa down to Osa where we have reservations at Bosque del Cabo for 4 nights. Then back up to Arenal for the last 4 nights - out of SJ in the afternoon on the 9th day. Sure hope this all works out!
Here's my questions: we are booked at Los Lagos (2 standard rooms), a place I would never stay on my own but one of my teens would be happy a clam to swim all day and never leave the hotel. So we chose it based on the pools. How far is it from EcoTermales? Will we be paying a fortune in cab fare to go anywhere (not sure about renting a vehicle)? Is Los Lagos hopelessly "plastic" or will we actually get a little Tico flavor? Recommendations for good eats close by appreciated as well. Thanks everyone!
