Monteverde - How many nights ?

Hi All

I hope you can help. We are a family of two adults and three children (aged 13, 10 and 6 years ) who are hoping to visit this area as part of our holiday to Costa Rica. We are wondering if there are enough places to visit / things to do to justify a three night stay or will two nights be sufficient.

The rest of our trip will be spent as follows;

Arenal - 4 nights

Tamarindo - 4 nights

Playa Samara - 4 nights

So far, We are planning to spend a day at Selvatura Park – visiting the Hanging Bridges, Hummingbird Gardens and Butterfly Gardens.

Any advice much appreciated.

I think two nights is plenty, especially since you can do your zip lines and adventure in Arenal. Your kids would also love the Bat Jungle.

Of course it depends are your travel times, if you don't get there until dark and you leave early AM, that only gives you one day to do everything on your list.
