monteverde and arenal

We will be staying in Tamarindo and want to visit Monteverde Cloud Forest, and Arenal Volcano, and then will be travelling to Ocotal in late November.

We are not renting a car. Is it easy to arrange transportation to and from these places? and how long a drive is it to Monteverde in November?

How long a drive from Monteverde to Arenal?

How long a drive from Arenal to Ocotal?

Do you recommend the Sky Walk and Canopy Tour in Monteverde? Arenal? or somewhere in Guanacaste?

Any specific tours or guides/companies at Monteverde or Arenal that we should consider?

We'd love to hear your advice and suggestions for making the most of these spots.
Thank you!

Tamarindo to Monteverde, about 3-4 hours

Monteverde to Arenal--about 3 hours

Arenal to Ocotal--about 4 hours

I assume you are flying in and out of Liberia?

Ziplining at either Arenal or Monteverde (or any of the canopy experiences) will be A-OK. If you don't get it done at Monteverde, you'll still have the op for a top notch experience at Arenal.

While at Arenal, do consider the Cano Negro tour with Sunset Tours. Your hotel can arrange, and it would be well worth your time!

While at Ocotal, do the short drive to Playa Hermosa and have a meal at Ginger--the food is excellent!

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! You have a fun (and different) itinerary!

Forgot to mention, you should be able to arrange all of these transfers through Interbus.
