costa rica: san jose to arenal to monteverde to playa teresa to san jose

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip in mid-January with our 25-year old boy/girl (twins). We are a very active family. Flying into San Jose, we'd like to go straight to Arenal and stay for 2 or 3 nights (maybe at Linda Vista) and then do the car-boar-car to Monteverde for another night. We'd like to raft on the Sarapiqui or Rio Toro, perhaps mountain bike, do some canyoning. In Monteverde, perhaps some hiking and ziplining. Then we'll need a driver to take us to Playa Teresa, where we'll stay for another 2 or 3 nights. We'd like to take a quad tour and a nice hike to the waterfall while we are there. Then, back to San Jose.
Do you think this is a do-able trip over 7 or 8 days, or is there too much traveling?
We think we'd be better off hiring drivers as opposed to renting a car.
Any suggestions?
