suggest a 5.5 day stay in costa rica

Hi we (2 adults and 2 kids 11 adn 13) are landing in san jose on monday at noon. Tentative plan is to go to arenal same day.. stay mon night and tue night. go to monteverde on wed stay the night .go to tamarindo on thur. stay thur and fri night and then drive back to san jose on sat sometime to catch our early morning flight on sun.

Is that too much driving. We have heard the monteverde cloud reserve is great and the aerenal area has nice things too and beach is imp for the kids. Any suggestions to modify and change the routing (go to tamarindo first and reverse the trip) would be appreciated.

want to go horseback riding, hiking, zip lining and lie on the beach.

thank you for your help.

Skip Monteverde and head straight to Tamarindo, if you can leave from Liberia airport, t will be better.
