Arenal to Montezuma best transportation

I am planning a trip to Costa Rica for the first time. I want to go to Arenal and then to Montezuma. Has anyone done this? I am reading that it is better to drive a car from San Jose to Arenal; however, can I then leave the car in Arenal and take a flight to Montezuma? I am leaning toward flying from Arenal to Montezuma to save time but Im having trouble finding flights from one place to the other...?

If there are only 2 of you, you can do the shuttle: http://www.interbusonline.com. If there are 4 of your, it will cost almost the same to get a private driver!

If you're going to rent a car, I'd rent it for the entire time-it gives you a lot of freedom.

If you want to fly, http://www.natureair.com, you can fly from La Fortuna to Tambor and then you'd have to take a taxi from there. From there you can easily fly back to San Jose. :-) Just watch the flight times as many times there is either only one flight per day or on only select days so make sure you figure that out before booking everything.
