Happy New Year! This is our first time in Costa Rica. We have booked a last-minute flight to San Jose, Costa Rica, January 24-Feb. 3rd, 2020. We are looking at staying 5 nights in Manuel Antonio/Quepos for deep sea fishing and sightseeing and five days near Arenal and Monteverde. Would this be the best way to break down our nine days?
We have not arranged transportation or a rental car. The flight to Quepos is currently $100 each one way. Not sure how to get to Arenal from Quepos.
All suggestions are welcome, especially ground travel and excursions. We have driven in Europe and are not opposed to driving but don't want to spend our trip in the car. We are 61 years old, in good shape and looking to zip line, fish, hike and anything else you suggest. Thank you for all suggestions! Roni Pridemore
