Costa Rica Itinerary Arenal, Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, Drake Bay

Jump to last reply

We are planning our honeymoon for April, and have around 11 days (including travel). We would like to do Arenal, Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, and possibly the Drake Bay/Corcovado area. Would something like this be feasible? We are thinking of renting a car.

Day 1: Arrive around noon, drive to Paos, stay first night here. Is it possible to see the crater/Butterfly Waterfall on this afternoon or early the next morning?

Day 2: Drive to La Fortuna / Arenal in the morning. Overnight Arenal.

Day 3: Arenal

Day 4: Arenal activity in the morning, drive to Monteverde in the afternoon.

Day 5: Monteverde

Day 6: Drive from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio

Day 7: Manuel Antonio

Day 8: Manuel Antonio

Day 9: Drake Bay - Day trip to Corcovado

Day 10: Drake Bay - Day trip to Cano Island

Day 11: drive to San Jose / fly out OR Fly from Drake Bay to San Jose. The latest flight we can get is 3pm.

Questions:
Would you spend more/less time in any of these areas?

Would you recommend staying in Paos on the first night or skip it and drive straight to Arenal/La Fortuna/Monteverde?

Would it make more sense to do Monteverde first, THEN go to Arenal? If so, should we wait until AFTER Arenal to rent a car then drive to Manuel Antonio?

Has anyone been to both Monteverde and the Los Angeles Cloud Forest? Is one significantly better than the other?

Is it possible to do the day trips from Drake Bay to Corcovado and Cano Island?

If we had to skip one, should we skip Monteverde or Drake Bay?

Any other tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
