We're planning our first trip to Costa Rica and only have a week to stay. We've narrowed things to down to three possible itineraries. We're planning on renting a car and driving between destinations. Would love any suggestions, advice, estimated travel times, favorite spots to stop along the way, etc. Also worth noting - we're staying over New Years, so any local festivities that you know of would be appreciated.
Here's our options:
3 nights in Playa Brasilito/Conchal and 3 nights in Playa Coyote (near Mal Pais)
3 nights in Playa Brasilito/Conchal and 3 nights in Arenal volcano region
3 nights in Arenal and 3 nights in Manuel Antonio nat'l park
Thanks in advance!
