Hey everyone. I was looking for some advice on how to split our time up for a 6day/6night trip to Costa Rica this September.
We are definitely basing our trip out of Puerto Viejo because we want to stay at a place recommended by a friend. But I had a few quick questions.
1) Would it be worth a 1-day 1 night detour trip to Arenal? Or is 1 day not worth it? We would do this on Day 1 before driving from San Juan to Puerto Viejo. I'd hate to miss Arenal since it's talked about it so much. But at the same time, it's a loss of ~3 hours each way in transit.
2) Any recommendations for day trips out of the south east tip of Costa Rica (Puerto Viejo)?
