We (husband and wife in early 30s) are thinking about following itinerary:
Husband arrives to San Jose (air tickets has been bought) and drive to Puerto Viejo via Tuis (to pick up wife) – thinking about renting a car from airport and dropping in Puerto Viejo. Rent a car in Puerto Viejo if feel like we need it.
Stay in Puerto Viejo for 4 nights
Leave for Bocas Del Toro in the morning and stay there for 4 nights – from whatever I read this should be around 4-5 hours commute including crossing border
Leave for San Jose airport and in the morning and stay there for a night and catch 11 am flight next day.
What are your thoughts?
