I will be in Santa Ana doing a Spanish program and living with a family in mid-August. On the last Friday of the program, my boyfriend is coming down and we are flying out together on Wednesday.
We've decided to spend the whole time in Manuel Antonio rather than try to drive around.
He gets in around noon on Friday and I am not done with class until around 3:30. Since I won't be able to rush right out (nor would I want to...say goodbye to family, etc.) is it too late to head for MA around 6pm? I've read that driving at night is not advisable (although I think we will hire a driver or take a van or something).
Would you recommend leaving for MA early Saturday morning?
Our flight back is at 10 am on Wednesday morning. I was thinking we should head to SJ Tuesday night, but again am worried about driving (or being driven) at night. At the same time, I want to spend as much time as possible in MA to be able to experience it. I know the park is closed on Monday so we were going to try to do a zip line and/or rafting that day.
Any thoughts? What time do you think we could reasonably leave on Tuesday?
