Jump to last reply

I can't wait to embark on our first trip to Costa Rica! My fiancee and I are spending 9 days in CR in mid March. We are flying from JFK into San Jose and arrive before noon. I am planning to get a driver (need sugestions on a driver please) to take us to the Lost Iguana for a two night stay. We are then planning to leave Arenal and drive ourselves to Tamarindo to stay 6 nights on the beach at Capitan Suzio. We then fly out of Liberia back to JFK. We are interested in white water rafting, zip lining, boat cruise, relaxation on the beach and exploring the area on our own...I have tried my best to organize a great trip based on a lot of reading of different posts and hope we are not missing out by only staying 2 nights in Arenal...any comments are welcomed on my itineray...Please advise me on the following:

1.) Need names of dependable driver to take us from airport to Lost Iguana
2.) Activites to do while in Arenal--definitely want to zipline...can we do whitewater rafting in Guancaste area??
3.) Name of rental car agencies for rental car from Arenal to Guanacaste ..plan to drop car off at Liberia airport..(is this worth it to get a car or just use drivers??)
4.) Any activites in the different areas that are Must see/do!!

Thanks so much !!!Can't Wait to explore what appears to be an amazing place!!
