Arenal – 3 nights, MA – 4 nights, near airport last night
Travelers: couple in late forties with two 17 years old boys (don’t think they will want to wake up early everyday :). We will not have a car. Will hire Oddysey driver for long drives, use taxis for short distances.
1/6 – Arrival to Liberia – 1:30PM, Oddysey’s private driver to Silencio Del Campo (La Fortuna) stop on the way for lunch, relax in a hotel’s hot spring
1/7- zipline (Ecoglide or Sky Track – I kind of scared that Sky Track - is very quick, never did zipline before). Lunch. La Fortuna waterfall hike/swim – if it’s not too late in the day consider that we have to get from one place to another and eat. Maybe do waterfall first in the morning and then zipline? Maybe drive at night to see lava?
1/8 – Not sure what to choose: Arenal hike (with whom as a guide?), Hanging Bridges? ½ day whitewater Rafting nearby?
1/9 - leave for MA. I’m thinking to stop by at Doka Estate for coffee tour and maybe lunch there. Hope it’s not a big detour? Is it also possible to visit Paz Waterfalls Garden or it’s way too far? Maybe see croc bridge on the way to MA (La Posada Jungle)
1/10 – 1/13 MA: beach, a few hours hike in MA with tour guide (recommended by hotel), maybe zipline if we will not do it in Arenal. Where zipline is better if we have to choose? Arenal or MA? Maybe whitewater rafting ½ day near by. Again where rafting is better? Arenal or MA? Maybe mangrove tour. But definetly beach everyday for let say ½ day.
1/13 – leave in the afternoon (as late as possible – what is reasonably late?) for Pura Vida hotel near airport.
1/14 – depart from SJO at 2:45PM, so we probably will have to leave hotel at something like 11:30am and I don’t think it’s realistic to do anything outside the hotel in the morning
Thansk a lot,
Mariya
