day trips from Playa Flamingo

We will be staying in a condo at Playa Flamingo for 2 weeks in February, and will have a 4wd. We want to rest at the beach, but also visit the area. We are thinking Rincon de la Vieja, Santa Rosa, Palo Verde, how far is it to drive there? Any other nice waterfalls, parks, nice little villages, or nature trails within 1-2 hours driving distance?

Dear Montreal

Good idea to have a 4x4 even that is not neccessary is always good to have that extra clearence from the road...

From Flamingo to Rincon about 2 hours..

From Flamingo to Santa Rosa...to main parking lot around 2.5 hours each way

From Flamingo to Palo Verde by the way of Ortega, Bolson..around 2 hours..depends on road condition...around that time of the year is dusty!

Take the Monkey trail...from Potrero to Sardinal and visit Coco´s and Hermosa beach...nice places to have somenthing to eat!
