March dates

I'm open to suggestions about how many days would be best for a stay in our area. The two or three meetings I've been to have been three days, I think. My inclination is to set aside at least 4 or 5 days, so that different activity preferences can be allowed for. It might work to have 2 or 3 days of shared time and meals etc., with another 2 or 3 days using the finca and house(s) as a base for travel within the country. Then people planning a second or even third week in Central America can head off to other venues...south to South America or north to the rest of Central America, Mexico, or even the US. I'll be adding some links to favorite spots in Costa Rica and welcome ideas for more. Maybe I can get some input from other CS members here in the country...Sharon, Corinne, Linda, Lavinia?? Others I haven't met? If there's not enough interest this year, we can concentrate on the French plans or look further. I can't get to France, unfortunately, as I'll have just returned from Carcassonne. Not complaining:)

Hi Aarnexia,

The weather here basically varies only by season (rainy or dry) and by altitude (we're at ~1000 meters). The dry season is December to April. It's about 22C to 27C (70F to 80F)in the daytime, and doesn't go below 12C at night at that time of year. We wear light pants, tee shirts, sandals, during the day. There are few occasions for fancy dress...maybe the symphony:) I own one dress...for weddings in other countries. I do wear socks and Crocs on the farm, as I run around in the brush some, and prefer to avoid bug bites.

The hubs for flights from the US are Houston, Dallas, LA, Charlotte, NY, Miami, and maybe Atlanta. A few more...Denver, and Phoenix. Spirit Air is least expensive, least reliable:) Their baggage allowance is small.

You might post fares that you find here...we've had guests recently who paid very low prices, but it all depends on searching.

I am still interested but not sure I can get everything together for the 2nd week in March. If I had my druthers, I would pick late April/early May; but it doesn't look like anyone else wants to do it then.
