Planes, Trains, and Automobiles!!

..well not trains. STILL trying to figure out our transportation.

thinking:

Hire driver for SJ to Arenal IS there cool stuff to see on the way?

Fly from Arenal to Quepos. Taxi to Manuel Antonio, where we are staying.

Hire a driver back to SJ the day of departure? 2:00 pm flight.

Is there much to see on the way?

one more question:

Do we miss really great scenery by flying from Arenal to Manuel Antonio, or does saving the 5 hours make up for that?

I think you have it very well, the drive from Arenal to Manuel Antonio doesn´t have much to see and you will doing the same way back to San Jose from M.A. Arriving to Manuel Antonio early is much better. NATUREGUIDE

Between Manuel Antonio and SJ, make sure you stop to see the crocodiles at the Tarcoles river below the bridge. Your driver would probably stop there for you to see anyway.
