10 days in Costa Rica - Ideas?

Jump to last reply

We (me, my wife, and 10 month old daughter) are going to Costa Rica next week and staying for 10 days. Flying from Phoenix nonstop into San Jose and staying there for 3 days at the Intercontinental San Jose Real. Getting in at 6:20pm the 1st night and renting a car for the entire trip. I realize 3 nights is probably too much in San Jose but our rooms were free and the hotel is nice. Any ideas for day trips from San Jose on our 2nd and 3rd days? I've heard La Paz waterfall gardens are nice. We then head to Manuel Antonio for 3 days and are staying at the La Posada Jungle Bungalows. Looking forward to taking the new highway there. Has anyone traveled this yet? My next to days are up in the air as we have two nights to make our way to Nayara Resort in Arenal. I was thinking Monteverde but then I would have to backtrack all the way around. Maybe Puntaranes or I could make it all the way up to Arenal and stay at a different hotel before Nayara. After two nights at Nayara we then head to Liberia to check in at the Hilton Garden in by the airport. Our flight out is early the next morning. We thought we would drop our stuff off and head to the beaches of Guanacanaste for the day. Any thoughts or must see activities we need to do keeping in mind we have a 10 month old..so probably no zip lining.. :(

Thanks!
