    My fiance and I love MA, and we have a relative who owns property there. That said, we are concerned about having older guests (i.e. grandparents) making the trip. Does anyone have experience with this issue? Any thoughts would be appreciated...Thanks!

      It's definitely doable, but it probably won't be fun if your grandparents have a hard time getting around. It partially depends on how you're traveling. Are you taking buses/shuttle or renting vehicles? The flight is long too of course, but at least you can break it up if you need to.

      What in particular are you concerned about? I originally hoped my 90 year old grandpa would come to my wedding, but now I'm sort of hoping he won't (we're getting married near Uvita, south of MA). I know he'd be able to do it, but he'll be exhausted I'm sure, and I also worry that he'll be bored. There are a lot of fun things to do in CR, but I know my grandpa will be unable to do any tours, or even really walk the beach. It doesn't seem like it's worth him making the trip just to be bored and frustrated, and I also worry that he'll fall or get sick.

      I guess one of the main concerns is where specifically you're staying. If you're staying somewhere that's easy for elderly people to get around, and where there's something for them to do, then I think it would be fine.

      Anyways, I don't have any actual experience with having grandparents in CR, so I'd be curious to see if anyone has done it too. I guess this sort of thing is one downside to a DW :S

        Hey There!

        I am also getting married in Manuel Antonio and having been there before, I know the drive is pretty scary.

        Nature Air offers daily flights to Quepos, which is a short drive to M.A. The flight is 30 min and costs around 70.00 USD. This is what I'm suggesting for my older and less adventurous guests. Although they are small planes, which I know scare some people.

        Good Luck and happy planning!

          Nature Air is popular and I personally prefer their airport in San Jose ...

          Another choice is Sansa their planes are a bit bigger and I've heard they are more comfortable.
