My husband and I are traveling to Costa Rica for 9 nights at the end of April/beginning of May. We plan on spending 1 night in San Jose, 3 nights in Monteverde, and 5 nights in Arenal (two nights at Nayara and 3 nights at Tabacon). My question is: Should we shorten our stay in Monteverde & Arenal to include a two day trip to Manual Antonio?? I'm worried that adding an extra stop will make the trip feel too rushed. We were hoping for one excursion a day, followed by lots of down time and trips to the spa. We travel to Mexico & Florida several times a year, and we live in California. Needless to say...we're always at the beach. Will the extra miles/expenses/and time to get to Manual Antonio be worth it, or should be stay put in Arenal/Monteverde?
