We land in Liberia on Friday afternoon and fly back from SJO two Modnays later at 6:15 am giving us 9 full days on the ground. Thinking of going to Playas Coco to stay at Rancho Armadillo for 3-4 days and then we want to head over to Arenal. We stayed at Lost Iguana last time and are considering Leaves & Lizards, which is considered a "retreat. Thoughts on this? Should we go on to another spot (and if so, where?). We will be renting a car in Liberia but it will be our first time driving in CR as we flew between places the last time.
We will be with our 11 year old daughter and her friend and want to as much adventure possible -- zip line, horseback ride, hanging bridge, swim, hike, ATV.
