Costa Rica Itinerary 1/31/13-2/11/13--HELP!! transportation & guides

Jump to last reply

So my husband and I are heading for a vacation full of adventure this February 2013 in the northern plains and Pacific Coast. I need help planning excursions as we have 5 days in arenal and 3 in Tamarindo/Guanacaste: here is our itinerary:
1/31: late flight into CR; staying at a B&B in alajuela
-? way to get to arenal, considering a car for a day or possibly a driver (would like to stop at poas volcano if worth it to do)
2/1-7: Nayara will be our home base
-was thinking canyoneering, zip line, night hike, hot springs, cerro chato hike, cano negro tour and white water rafting (any other suggestions or certain outfitters for these; i was thinking desafio for most)
-should I plan to do any of these trips on my own, I am thinking of having a guide only to get the most information out of our experience
2/7-2/10: tamarindo/guanacaste in a B&B:
-? how to get there, heard it is a nice drive but unsure if it would be better to get a driver
-scuba diving (we're both certified), surfing lessons/SUP and a night watch of the turtles nesting (i am obsessed with turtles!), enjoying the beach and relaxation
2/10 head back on a flight on SANSA to SJO and staying in Alajuela again before we head back 2/11

I would love to know if there is anything I am missing, I would love to get the most out of the experience and would mainly like to know suggestions of guides and how to get from place to place. the initial place in alajuela suggested we just take a bus to la fortuna but we do prefer a little more freedom with stopping and sight seeing as we have a whole day to get to NAYARA.

Happy new year and thank you for your input!
