I've been to Costa Rica before, but my husband has not. I'm eager to show him how wonderful this place is.
We landing at SJO at 11:48 on 19 October 2012. We are scheduled to pick up our rental car at 13:00 and head towards La Fortuna (hopefully sooner if we can get through customs quickly, which wasn't a problem for me in the past).
I believe that we'll have five hours of daylight to get to La Fortuna (pitch black at 18:00). We'll be ready for lunch in the first half of the drive to La Fortuna, so I figured that we might stop at La Paz on the way for lunch and a visit. My question is if we stay there for two hours, will that be enough time? Is it worth it?
13:00-14:30, drive from SJO to La Paz
14:30-16:30, lunch and tour La Paz
16:30-18:00, drive from La Paz to La Fortuna
I'm also open to other suggestions of a stop to make along the way. Hubby isn't a coffee drinker (I LOVE the stuff), so I don't think he'd get excited about that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
