I am planning a trip with a buddy of mine down to Costa Rica in October. We will be flying in San Jose and we want to spend 6 nights in Punta Uva (PU)and 3 nights in the Arenal area. From a logistic point of view, should we go to PU first or go to Arenal first or does it matter? We would probably take a bus to either area from San Jose. What is the best way to get from PU to Arenal or vice versa? Any recommendations on places to stay in both areas? Has anyone used the Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) website for these areas and have a good experience? Any other must see or must do suggestions for either area would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help.
