My husband and I did the Central/Fortuna/Monteverde/Tamarindo route spring 2006 (no luggage, just a backpack and duffle bag). Spring 2007 we're taking our 9 and (will be) 15 year-old; this time to the Caribbean side(Puerto Viejo, Cahuita). We also want to go to Bocas del Toro. Any suggested routes or where to start and end? We have 9 nights and stuffed backpacks. We really want to get a feel for the way the locals live and nature, wild life (especially sloths and monkeys), beautiful beaches...no fancy resorts...Somewhere nicer then a tent, but NOT Four Seasons. :) Lonely Planet is helpful, but I need more details.
