Hi there. I'm trying to find out what kinds of attractions are near the Westin in Playa Conchal. I am extremely interested in participating in a hanging bridge hike but the only places I've found where they have these are Arenal and Monteverde provincial parks which, according to my research, are 3-4 hour drives away one way. So 6-8 hours of my day would be in a bus ride. Is this information correct? Are there any parks of any kind within an hour or so ride from The Westin? I really wanted to go into the rain and/or cloud forest.
I am also very interested in visiting an animal rescue sanctuary. I know of the Jaguar Rescue Centre in Playa Chiquita, but again it is just too far away to travel to (seven hours one way according to my research). Is there another animal rescue sanctuary closer to Playa Conchal?
Thank you for your assistance. :)
