We are staying at the casitas tenorio in early june. We fly into LIR around 4pm and we were planning on driving straight there. We have two active boys (10 & 7) and we wanted a base to do some local activities and settle into the property and the town. We plan to spend 5 nights in Samara after our first 5 nights in Bijagua so we will get time on the ocean later. We leave out of SJO.
Is 5 nights in Bijagua too many? We want to have time to explore the casitas property, do a rio celeste float, hang in town and let the boys play at the park/soccer field. Maybe hike, go swim in a waterfall or do rio perdido.
Can we do Tabacon and AOL from Bijagua or would we need to spend a night there? I personally would like to spend a day at some point in our trip at tabacon. Wondering if we can get there just for a day trip with a tour company using bijagua as our base.
Do we need a car at all from LIR to Bijagua and during our stay or could we just get a local driver from casitas for a few short drives, book some tour transfers and walk to town in bijagua?
Thanks in advance for any advice, we are looking to relax, and get to know town and see animals and rio celeste, our boys attend a spanish elementary school at home so any cultural experience like volunteer work or a dance or art class with or just some pick up soccer with local kids would be fun too
