Costa Rica - EasterHi, It's so happened that we purchased tickets to Costa Rica before we found out about Semana Santa. So we'll be spending 12 days covering the whole Easter week. As I understand, the places like Tortuguero and Monteverde/Arenal would still be functioning and there it shouldn't be as bad. But we were also hoping to squeeze in a few days of beach during the vacation and this is what my question is about.
Considering it's still a few months ahead - what would be our best bet to find a place to relax? Mind you, we have two children, so "relax" is relative :)
I was wondering if we should be looking at Atlantic coast or at Osa?
Before I found out about the Easter I was thinking Arenal + Monteverde, Tortuguero, Palo Verde and one of the Pacific parks, maybe Cabo Blanco or Guanacaste + Santa Rosa. I thought I have a lot of time for planning, but apparently not so.

1Everything will functioning except Good Friday and Easter Sunday will be limited. This is also the peak for the beach influx of locals, so avoid Easter Weekend at the beach, or go to less popular or or remote beaches, like Mal Pais area.
The Osa is rather raw, and not a place for little ones, and no real beach to speak of, its mostly pretty rough currents and rip tides around Corcovado. Playa Uvita/Bellena is a option.
