Advice on first trip to CR

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are travelling from Ireland to CR on 1 January to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Any advice on the following itinerary would be much appreciated:

1 January: Arrive SJO - fly to Quepos or hire car and drive to Manuel Antonio (which would be better?). Stay 4 nights in Issimo Suites.

5 January: Hire car from Quepos and drive/take ferry to Nicoya Peninsula, spending a few nights in Montezuma/Santa Teresa/Mal Pais or further up the coast (Samara, etc.).

8 January: Drive to Monteverde/Arenal for 3 nights.

11 January: Fly home from Liberia.

Does this sound doable or should we spend more time on the peninsula, leave out Monteverde and just do Arenal? Or is there more to see in that area than on the peninsula?

I'm not sure of the driving distances, e.g. how long would it take to drive from Santa Teresa to Samara, or from Samara to Arenal?

Thanks in advance for all your comments.
