Costa Rica Master Thread

@elite flyer. Thank you for the TR. I was planning a trip to CR and to stay at the andaz. We would probably have to bring a 5-6 month baby along. After reading your report, I'm having second thoughts. The only thing is we might be taking along our grandma, so she'll be able to babysit our son while we get out there.
Life is as good as you make it...

definitely would be nice to have a babysitter along! We ran into many parents at the resort, but typically older and in the Cambi kids program for several hours each day.

I don't really fell comfortable sticking a 6 month old baby in some random baby sitter hands.

What's the best way to get a data plan in Costa Rica? Just go to the nearest local store? Is there any way to get it set up b4 going?

From some quick research, only Avianca flies that route. Aviance is *A and IINM there are no distance programs in *A anymore.

:) True.
If you fly on United back to the continental U.S- it's not any extra to tack on the leg from LIR-SJO.
In fact, you get to fly on a Cessna 402.

Good Luck ;/

You're saying to get a free stopover on the roundtrip? Not a bad idea for someone that wants Andaz in LIR and SJO for Shabbos.

I'm not stopping over, rather just staying put in the Andaz Large Suite over shabbos - July 4th weekend.
I wonder if I should make a kiddush in the private pool.

You're all invited :)
