We are visiting Costa Rica in June. We are staying in Nosara from June 6-16th. I am looking for advice/suggestions for after our stay in Nosara. Our travel group consists of husband, 5 year old daugher, babysitter, and me.
I have booked Paradise Air transfer to Arenal on the 16th. I am thinking of 2 nights at Tabacon and then taking ferry over to Monteverde to stay 2 nights at El Establo.
Would this give us sufficient time to enjoy hot springs and maybe do a zip line tour?
How long does it take to get from ferry to El Establo?
Would it be an okay car ride from El Establo to San Jose at this time of year if we book a private driver (I have read other reviews that this is a 3.5 hour ride).
I also am considering doing only Arenal so we could just do a private transfer on Paradise Air to San Jose instead of driving.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
