Arenal or Nicoya Peninsula?

Jump to last reply

I have our trip to Costa Rica planned for 11 nights in April early April for my husband, myself and our 4 teenagers. Our plan currently is 1 night near San Jose (7 pm flight arrival), 2 nights Arenal, 5 nights Manuel Antonio and 3 nights at Rafiki Safari Lodge.

Well, my parents have decided to join us now and they really want to go to the Nicoya Peninsula because they have friends who always talk about it.

Our only real flexibility is to change the two days in Arenal for Nicoya Peninsula. My parents are willing to pay for the water taxi so our travel time will not be too much.

My questions - do you think it is worth changing our plans? Will we like the Montezuma area better than Arenal? Are there activities/sites in Montezuma area that are different than Manuel Antonio?

We are coming from rainy Seattle for spring break so we do want to try to avoid too much rain if possible.
