A Mother/Daughter Nature Expedition Costa Rica

A Mother/Daughter Nature Expedition

In Costa Rica, everyone was friendly and welcoming. I seriously did not meet one unfriendly person. Drake Bay is so amazing, we would have extended our stay at the Wilderness Resort if they had rooms available!

From Alajuela to Drake Bay…

My daughter and I planned this long-awaited Costa Rica trip through Anywhere. We flew into Alajuela and planned to spend most of our vacation at Drake Bay. We’ve heard great things about the Osa Peninsula, so we couldn’t wait to explore the beaches and rainforests. Drake Bay wilderness resort was a great hub to do a lot of local tours and excursions! The staff was amazing and the meals were great! We would have extended our stay if they had rooms available!

A great way to travel…

As recommended by Tracy, we took the local planes from Alajuela to Drake Bay, and back. Although the plane was small, we had a very professional captain who communicated with passengers. The ride was smooth and a good experience. We also got stunning views out the window of the beautiful landscape.

Costa Rica is about the size of West Virginia, but ground transportation can take many hours on its rough, windy, and mountainous roads. Depending on your travel route, domestic flights may be the most convenient and sensible option. Traveling between some destinations can take up to 8 hours by ground, while a domestic flight can cut that travel time to 35 minutes - a major time saver, especially if you have only a short time in Costa Rica.
