Ok, here's the deal. I am heading to Costa Rica in two weeks with two friends, we are all 30 year old males. We are arriving in SJO and plan on driving to Arenal, staying for a few day and then heading to Monteverde. i have gotten very conflicting times as far as driving from La Fortuna to Monteverde. How long should it realistically take? Also, when we leave Monteverde we are heading to Tamarindo. A few websites I have read said it takes about 4 hours, does that seem right?
Lastly, what is there really to do in Monteverde, we are not into birds, and are looking for more adventurous activities. I would prefer not go to Monteverde and spend more time in Arenal, but my partners are insisting. Thank you very much for any help.
