I’ve planned the following itinerary for my family of 5: SJO->Puerto Viejo (4d)->Turrialba (2d)->Dominical (7d)->SJO. We love the natural beauty along with the AfroCarribean culture that Puerto Viejo has to offer but concerned about the security risks. With 3 kids (9, 15 and 17) should I consider another location and avoiding this area? We have booked a home rental close to Banana Azul near Playa Negra. We travel to Mexico annually and have been to Jamaica and Puerto Rico without problems.
Jenn & Matt – Thank you very much for feedback and an awesome job on your “Top 10 Costa Rica Intineraries.” The information is invaluable…It’s a must have for anyone planning to visit Costa Rica.
Thanks, that’s great to hear about the book being useful! We appreciate the kind words. Hope you enjoy CR!
