Hole in Costa Rica Itinerary. Recommendations?

Jump to last reply

Heading to San Jose on November 2nd. The plan was Arenal for 3 nights, Monteverde for 2-3, Manuel Antonio for a couple then a night in San Jose before flying out.

I'm starting to think Monteverde might be too much the same at Arenal. We are renting a car and I'm up to driving the bumpy roads but since the activities are much the same, I would like to entertain another option. Even if it's one night in one place, another night in another place.

Any recommendations for 3 nights? I can handle a 5 hour drive to get there. We will have already zip-lined and kayaked so maybe another place with good hiking/bird watching/...?

Thanks!
