Can anyone recommend something to do and places to stay -- low key and relaxing, for one day near or on the way to Las Horquetas (from San Jose)?
My family arrives in Costa Rica late one evening in mid-December. Two mornings later, early, we are to catch the tractor ride in Las Horquetas up to Rara Avis. My wife will be exhausted from an intense period of work. But, I'll have two active and curious teenage boys with us, also. So, I'm looking for something that will be beautiful and peaceful for my wife and active for the boys. We will only be there for about 1/2 and an evening.
