We (2 adults, 2 boys ages 8 and 12) are thinking about going to Costa Rica this summer and Tortuguero is on top of our list of things to see. We will be renting a car and driving on our own but since you need to take a bus/boat to Tortuguero we will probably rent the car after the tour so this would be the first thing we would do. After looking at the descriptions it seems like all the tours leave San Jose really early in the morning and you have a 25 pound per person luggage limit. This will be a problem since: we will be on California time and don't want to get up *too* early the first day, and we will be gone for over 2 weeks hence carrying a lot of luggage. Don't want to store the luggage in the hotel since we will not be staying in the same place after Tortugueuro. Is it possible to pay extra and be able to carry more luggage, and is there any other private company that can take you to the boat launch at a more civilized time during the day?
