Arenal/Monteverde to Guanacaste beaches


looking for an experienced answer

Is it significantly easier to get to the Guanacaste beaches (conchal, coco, brisilito etc) from Arenal or Monteverde? We travel by public bus and we can go to flip Arenal and Monteverde in our itinerary if it helps us get to our next destinations faster/easier/cheaper.

As is:

San Jose to Monteverde via public bus

Monteverde to Castillo (Arenal) via Jeep boat Jeep

Arenal to Northwest beaches by public bus.

To be honest is not a big difference ...but maybe is easier from Monteverde...you just take the bus to Pan Am Hwy...and then wait for the bus to Liberia...or if you are lucky and knows wich bus to flag down...you may end up with a direct to some Guanacaste beach!

Your itinerary looks good...enjoy our country as much as we do!

Just buckle up and enjoy the bus ride in PARADISE!
