Am I Rushing the Itinerary to get it all in? Help...

Jump to last reply

My family and I are flying into San Jose staying over (due to late flight) and then heading to Arenal area for 3 nights. We want to cover the volcano, zip lines (if kids are old enough) and some fishing for my husband. From there we plan to head to the Southern Puntarenas Coast- thinking of spending 3 nights in Santa Theresa and then 3 nights in Montezuma. THe last night back in San Jose for early flight. Do you think it makes sense to break up the coastal night stays? I'm torn and thinking of doing it this way so that the Santa Theresa area fills the ideal long vast beach with great sunsets and the Montezuma area we get the waterfalls and cove-like beaches. I'm just questioning if I'm pushing it and we'll feel too rushed? I realize the two areas aren't too far apart so that helps. This planning is tricky between travel and driving times- I thought 11 nights would seem lengthy but when planning it I start to feel like it's rushed. : (
Any advice is appreciated.
p.s. My husband and I have been to Arenal before so we definitely want to keep the stay for 3 nights in that area and I realize a good part of the first day in Santa Theresa is spent getting there...
Thanks for any help you can offer.
