Orquideas Inn is around halfway between the airport and Poas. Very reasonably priced and at a junction where the roads to Poas, SJO, and Arenal/Manuel Antonio/Grecia/Sarchi.

We haven't stayed there, but check out the reviews for Poas Lodge, very near the volcano. It looks like a nice place.

Will you be driving a car or taking public transport?

Why 2 days at Paos? Usually Paos is a nice stop close to airport when flights are forcing short travel times. if not, stay up the road closer to La Paz Waterfalls or the Bruallio NP Entrance.

Otherwise, head to Arenal region.

Translation: Paos = Poas

Bruallio NP = Braullio Carrillo National Park.

There's nothing wrong with staying in the Poas area for a couple of days. It's your vacation, gdcall, and you get to decide where to stay.

I agree with Racandee about Orquideas Inn -- really a beautiful place and a great location.

Orquideas/Poas aren't close to Braulio Carrilo, just to be clear.
