Best to get to Arenal & Monteverde via Liberia or San Jose?

My husband and I are trying to determine if we should fly into LIberia or San Jose, en route to see the Monteverde and Arenal Volcano areas. We thought we'd rent a car in either big city, and drive to Monteverde and Arenal areas (which one first, is also the question). Does anyone have suggestions? Is driving from either big city preferred? Or would we be best taking a chartered van tour of that area? We only have 3 days for that part of the country, then we'll head to Jaco and vacinity. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

My eagle eye is on you, Hattie!!! No. seriously, I do appreciate that you corrected my wrong info. People out there relies on us sometimes even without double checking the info given, thus we really need to be precise. Just for the record, OP would ended his flight at Limbunya Airport, Limbunya, Northern Territory, Australia. Not a bad destination either.
