9 days CR- Peace Lodge to Payagayo

We are two couples in our 60's going to Costa Rica for the first time. We hope to hire drivers between hotels and have the hotels arrange our day tours. We will be flying into San Jose and flying out of Liberia. We have our two hotels for the the first two and last two nights. (Peace Lodge La Paz Waterfalls and Andaz Peninsula Papagayo)
We were thinking of also going to Arenal. We wanted to include Manuel Antonio, but that seems like too much driving. Is there anywhere along our route that will give us a similar experience to Manuel Antonio national park, but makes more sense logisticly?
Thanks,
MK

The Manuel Antonio National Park is somewhat unique as it offer trails for walking and a beautiful beach area inside the park.
However, Manuel Antonio will be out of route and can't suggest any other place that offer a similar experience.

If you are heading to Guanacaste the best place to go is Arenal (logistically this is the way to go). While in Arenal you can still experience the rainforest, go on nature walks, relax at the hot springs, sign up for local activities or simply admire the volcano views from your hotel room.

Not sure how much additional time you have, but spend another 2-3 nights at Arenal.

Hi MK.I saw your post, we are also a couple in their 60s traveling to CR for the first time - and I am just overwhelmed with reading... Would love to discuss your plan with you - maybe we can learn something! Thanks, AR
