Itinerary -10 days in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

Hi All! I have been trying to get to Costa Rica for 3 years and it is finally happening this year! I have been following this board for a while and have a good idea of what this trip will be but I would appreciate input on this itinerary-Keeping in mind that my dh is not really a nature guy so I don't want to bombard him with too much hiking or hard work! After planning this..I seem to have a left over night and would like advise on where to spend it-either Arenol or MA? Here it goes:
Day 1-land in SJ and renting a car-driving leisurely to Arenol (would appreciate advise if we should stop somewhere along the way) we land at 11:45am so we have all day to get to Arenal. (staying at the Observatory Lodge)
Day 2-Arenol activities/spa either Echo Term or Tabacon
Day 3-1/2 day to do more in Arenol then drive to Monteverde (I understand about 4 hr drive..)
Day 4-Monteverde hike (probably all my husband will be in for)
Day 5-1/2 day in Monteverde then drive to MA
Day 6/7/8-MA (staying at Arenas del Mar)
Day 10-flying into SJ -one night there (our flight out leaves SJ at 7am the next day)

so...I have skipped day 9-this is the day I need advise about-I know this is an ambitious itinerary-but we like to move around and love driving in foreign countries so it's not daunting to us-also-if it doesn't involve a motorcycle dh gets quickly bored so moving around is ok..I have a few more questions but will hold them for the next posting! Thank you all for any advise! This is a great board-
