Nosara, Santa Teresa & La Fortuna - Best Travel Order?

Hi, my wife and I are planning a Costa Rica trip this September and am wondering what is the best travel order is, ie most efficient/easiest if we go to the 3 subject locations. We fly into Liberia. We are fine with either driving or flying or both, whatever is makes for the easiest vacation! We are going for about 2.5 weeks.

In a way, it doesn't really matter what the order is. But maybe put La Fortuna in between the two beach locations.

I suggest that you start either at the beach (Nosara, then Santa Teresa) then go across on the ferry and do the inland route to San Ramon and on to La Fortuna then around Lake Arenal and back to Liberia making a circle route so that you are not retracing your steps. You could also do the reverse La Forutna, Santa Teresa, Nosara. If you are on the Nicoya Peninsula, you may as well hit both beach locations together or you will be driving back and forth across the peninsula more times than you want to.

Depending on when your flight arrives and when it leaves, you may have to stay close to Liberia or in Liberia so take that into consideration.
