This is for a 8 day/7 night itinerary to visit Arenal (La Fortuna), Monteverde, and Manuel Antonio.  You can easily modify to add extra days in each destination, I would not reduce the days though.

  • Day 1 fly into Juan Santamaria International Airport (San Jose, Costa Rica actually in Alajuela) pick up car for drive to La Fortuna (approximately 2 hour drive).
  • Day 2 Visit La Fortuna Water Falls
  • Day 3 Drive to Monteverde (approximately 4 hour drive)
  • Day 4 Sky Trek or Sky Walk with Costa Rica Sky Adventures
  • Day 5 Drive to Manuel Antonio (Approximately 3.5 hour drive)
  • Day 6 Visit Manuel Antonio National Park
  • Day 7 Whitewater rafting
  • Day 8 Return to San Jose for your flight home (approximately a 3 hour drive)

You may also prefer to spend the last night closer to San Jose so you are closer to the airport, possibly in the Jaco area.
