Need Itinerary Help for 2nd Trip to Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

I’ve just completed my trip report on our first trip to CR (Dec 20-Jan 6). We stayed at Lost Iguana in Arenal area, Decary B & B at Lake Arenal, Manatus Lodge in Tortuguero, Aquila de Osa in Drake Bay and Bosque del Cabo, an hour south of Puerto Jimenez, also on the Osa Peninsula. This next trip we want to explore different areas.

What do you think of this plan:
fly into Liberia from Los Angeles stay at Hotel Javy Casa del Papel B & B (neither look thrilling) in Liberia 2 nts

rent car and drive to Blue River Rainforest Resort (1 hr from Liberia) or Borinquen Mountain Resort, 1 hr 15 from airport 2 to 3 nights

drive to Playa Hermosa Villa Belmar or Bosque del Mar 2-3 nights

turn in car in Tamarindo and fly to Montezuma (must fly thru San Jose & then to Tambor + shuttle down the coast) OR somehow drive to Montezuma (how?) & overnight on way if necessary

Montezuma: Ylang Ylang Beach Resort looks like it has everything I like 3 (or 4?) days
is Montezuma very different in flavor from the beaches at Playa Hermosa and Coco??? Is one area less hot and humid in high season? Which would you choose and why?

fly to San Jose or drive
2 nights splurge at Finca Rosa Blanca or Peace Lodge
fly home from San Jose

We can get away most easily over Christmas holiday or last two weeks in January.
All comments and suggestions greatly appreciated
