ad 1. there is no need to stay first at hotel Aeropuerto as La Rosa de Amerivca is, what, 15 min from the airport?! Just take a taxi and drive directly to La Rosa.

ad 2. now already 4 nights, so keep it 3 nights; that will give you 2 full days to explore around

ad 3. Santa Clara is in general vicinity of Arenal; if one day is Projecto Asis, what are you planning to explore on second day?

ad 4. saying this, two full days are not enough in Arenal; so Santa Clara 2 nights and Arenal 4 nights

ad 5. again, four nights might be a day too long at Monteverde; if not a hardcore birder, 3 nights are good enough

ad 6. Quepos?! Or do you mean Manuel Antonio? Anyway if it is about exploring then skip both and drive a bit south towards Dominical/Uvita area. Much better base for exploring around different microclimates

Thank your very much, Xelas.

Many good suggestions.

We choose Santa Clara because of the Tree House. I really like it after reading the review. I may short it for two nights.

Monteverde, four nights, too long, good, short it to three night.

Dominical/Uvita, add to my Itinerary!

Thank you again.
