We are a family of 4 and planning to come to Costa Rica on August 12th. I have a 6 and 2-year old son.
I am planning to stay at AOl or either LI from August 15th-19th. I am getting a Smithsonian room at AOL from $130/night. THe cost of the room for 4 nights is around $588. There is an additional cost of $1400 dollars for all the tours. ( haniging bridges, horseback to La Fortuna, Ecothermales, Skytram, Cano Negro, Volcano hike).
At LI we are getting a room for 3 nights for $1185 plus tax and then we get two nights free. However, the tour adds another $1400. SO, the difference in staying btw these two lodges is $1000 which is a lot.
Is LI really worth coughing up the extra money. My guess is that we will be doing the tours most of the time and will not have enough time for anything else. Any advise is appreciated.
