How to travel from SJO to Arenal and Monteverde?

Jump to last reply

thank you to everyone who replied to my previous questions on COSTA RICA!
My airfare is taken care of.. and have a choice bw flying into SJO or LIR..
QUESTION:
if i decide to go into SJO, i will plan to stay 1 night in area (Adventure Inn?-- any comments?) on the way into CR, then 1 night, the day before we head back home.

Trip (i think) will focus on Arenal and Monteverde.. how do i get to each destination?
which makes more sense to hit first?
I guess the consensus is 3-4 days in Arenal? 2-3 days in Monteverde?
is it easy to just find drivers who will take you there?
