We had a wonderful trip to Costa Rica in April . So fabulous, that we are thinking of going again next April. Last time we split the trip between Nayara and the Westin Playa Conchal. We wished we had stayed at the Nayara the whole time, but we were afraid it would be too long so we split the trip. Now we feel that we missed many exercusions we would have liked to do in Arenal and we need at least another 3 days in Arenal to explore. Again, we are thinking of splitting the trip because we definately would like to see more of Costa Rica . We love the Ocean but realized after last year's experience, that the ocean is not a priority. Any other regions and accomodations that anyone can recommend for a split trip would be appreciated.
