we are planning a week vacation in CR and i've pretty much narrowed our vacation down to splitting the time between arenal and manuel antonio, and maybe monteverde. i've also concluded that with the kids in tow, we really would prefer the convenience of being driven instead of renting a car.
so my questions are:
what would you recommend as far as transportation to and from san jose airport?
we have a couple of hotels in mind, would you book with them separately? i was thinking maybe a tour company could custom arrange all our hotel/transportation--any recommended tour companies that are known to be legit and good?
if we were to do monteverde, would we need to get a hotel there or is arenal close enough to do a day trip?
