Arenal Itinerary with Desafio - too much?

Jump to last reply

We are in Arenal for 5 nights and then headed to the Pacific Coast for another 9. My feeling is that Arenal is the place to get in all your adventures while enjoying the beauty around you (I've never been to Costa Rica so what do I know though). We are travelling peak season with 6 of us so I wanted to make sure we have reservations to aviod disappointment.
My question is now that I have an itinerary is it realistic. I've been working with Desafio and they have been great. I don't know how long each of these tours are or what time they have us starting or ending. I thought maybe those of you who have done some of these tours but be able to commment.
We are still debating on whether to rent a car or use Destinos Encantados Bohar Travel Agency.

Day 1
Liberia to Arenal

Day 2
La Fortuna Waterfall Guided Hike
Whitewater Rafting Class 2 & 3

Day 3
