I will will be traveling with four teenagers to ages 15,16,18 and 19 to Costa Rica in May. (Yes ..I know i'm nuts) Anyway, I have terrible flight times from Colorado and I get to San Jose airport at 5 am Thursday May 23 and I leave San Jose airport on June 1 Saturday at 6 am. So just about a total of 9 days. What I would like to do is check out Vulcan Poas and maybe la paz waterfall garden then over to Arenal for a day. From there I was hoping to drive to Santa Teresa and chill out on the beach for about 6 days (Maybe learn how to surf and read a book with a drink in my hand) Then back to San Jose for that early flight back. Any suggestions and criticism to this itinerary would be helpful including driving routes. I read somewhere that roadadvisor has 18 kids so he must have some good advice for me
P.S. I promised my wife I would not throw any kids into any Volcanoes to make the trip easier, but thanks!
