I'd appreciate some input from all you so wonderful CR lovers.
My husband (quintessential beach bum)and I are heading down to CR Caribbean side in august with our 1yr old son.
We're quiet not too touristy beach lovers (had our honeymoon in Anguilla best time hopefully CR will be more :-)
Based on all my research we've decided to start out at Congo Bongo in Manzanillo for 3 nights. We wanted to take a trip to the Punta Mona Farm which looks like a lovely sustainable set-up we would enjoy (we try to live green).
And then finish off with another 3 nights in Punta Uva.
Pachamama, our first choice of a place to stay in Punta Uva which fits our budget, breakfast included, close to beach, nice owners etc is unfortunately full.
Our 2 choices now Casa Viva which is just little over budget and no breakfast(important for hubby)but appear to be closer to beach and Itaita which is within budget and has breakfast included but not so close to beach as Casa Viva and Casa V appears a little fancier.
Child safety is important, overall I think we'll do fine, I'm orginally from West Africa and I carry my son everywhere on my back here in New York (sometimes on bikes too) he plays in the dirt all the time and is always exploring something, I'd like to think our boy has a native edge and can survive "going native or tribal". My American husband however needs a little more assurance and some comfort.
Any insights will be appreciated.
