So we have 8 days 7 nights booked the whole trip through anywhere Costa Rica the itinerary is:
Day one May 24 fly in Cops airlines from LAX arriving in San Jose at noon picking up the 4x4 rental car
Driving to Arenal staying two nights
Next we drive to Monetverde
Day 3 and 4 are in Monteverde
Next we are scheduled to go to Tamarindo from Monteverde which is a pretty long drive we are scheduled to stay 4 nights then the last day we have to drive back to San Jose to catch a 3pm flight. I am noticing that it would be a 6 hour drive before a 7 hour flight. Seems pretty hectic any ideas about alternatives to Tamarindo? Maybe Jack or Manuel Antonio? This is mine and my boyfriends first trip so were not to specific. We are very active and like to get out and see stuff. Plus he is a big time surfer.
Any tips, suggestions, or advise would be awesome!
Oh and so far the activities we have are
Hot springs and hike in Arenal
Zip lining in Monteverde with a night walk tour
