Manuel Antonio / Arenal

Jump to last reply

I have 5.5 days in Costa Rica in August. I was planning on going to Manuel Antonio but I have heard good things about Arenal. Several people have said it's a "must see" while we are there. I looked it up and it seems like Arenal is about a 4.5 hr drive from Manuel Antonio.
We already have to spend 3 hrs each way from the airport so I'm wondering if it is worth it to spent the extra 4.5 hrs to drive to Arenal with the amount of days I have there?
If so, how many days should I spend at each place?
