8 Days in Costa Rica-Skip Monteverde?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are currently planning our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We have 8-9 days. We are planning on staying in the Mt. Arenal area (Lost Iguana Resort) for 3 nights. From there, we want to make sure we have some beach time. In our original itinerary, we were planning on going to both Mt Arenal and Monteverde, but it seems like it would be too difficult to also squeeze in a couple nights at a beach given our time frame.

We are now planning on going to Mt. Arenal and Manuel Antonio. Would we be missing out if we skipped Monteverde? Also, if we do go to Manuel Antonio, are there any places worth stopping to break up the 6 hour drive or would you suggest heading straight from Mt. Arenal to Manuel Antonio in one shot?

The main things we want to do in Costa Rica are: hiking, ziplining, seeing wildlife, and going to the beach
