Rincon de la Vieja and Monteverde- how long to stay?

I am visiting both locations but can't decide on length of stay. Should I do 2 days in Rincon and 3 days in Monteverde? Or 3 in Rincon and 2 in Monteverde? Thanks.

I find that 2 nights in Monteverde are sufficient unless you are very interested in birding. Gives you a full day to hike the cloud forest. I would then spend 3 nights in Rincon de la Vieja.

But really its a personal choice depending on the number of activities that are of interest to you at each location, doing some reaserch on tours and activities in both locations will give you a much better feel.

Enjoy Costa Rica!
