How much time in MA, and what to do/see?

Would 4 or 5 days be too much to spend in Manuel Antonio? Looking for beach time and ecotourism stuff, like hiking. Any places near MA that'd be worth making a day trip out of?

I've done 5 days there and 9 days....5 days was perfect, 9 was too many. If you book a couple days of adventures (zipline, fishing, rafting etc..) then you really only have a couple days in MA becuase for the most part any tour is going to take up most of that day.

Thanks, I'm looking at probably 4 days. This should end up being perfect!

4-5 days is ok, check the park with a guide , then take a another tour , many options to choose from, and enjoy the beach for a couple days, very nice place

Anywhere from 3-5 days. After that you've exhausted everything there is to do in the area.

But, how much time you should spend really depends on how long the whole trip is and what else you want to see/do and where else you want to go.

Much depends on your travel style, but most people don't find 3-4 days to be enough to do all the fun stuff in our area, as well as have a little time to just relax. However, it's understandable to want to see more of our beautiful county, in which case 3-4 days is fast, but not uncommon. Enjoy!
