Early November - relaxing before exploring Costa Rica

We are thinking of going to CR in early November and I'm wondering which place would be the best starting point for a couple of days down time (after running a marathon) before exploring the country for around 10 days or so?

Beach with maybe some scuba or surfing (depending on how recovery goes) preferred - I was thinking of Osa Peninsula (we can either fly into Liberia or San Jose)

As much as Osa is a beautiful and special place, it surely is not a place for down time. Just too much can be seen and explored there. I would stop at either Santa Teresa/Montezuma on Nicoya peninsula, or Uvita/Dominical. Both are good for relaxation, very good surfing, and some possibilities for scuba boat tours (Tortuga Island near ST and Cano Island near Uvita).
