we are a young couple in their early 30's and are planning a 1 week trip to arenal and then a beach destination in costa rica. We will be flying in from Toronto and would love to get suggestions on which beaches you would recommend that are ideal for swimming and snorkelling and yet not too far from the general Arenal -Liberia area as we only have 1 week. I have heard that the carribean beaches are better, but not sure if thats true.
We would like to stay at a beach that has warm waters, good food, cafes and some activity.
Any suggestions would be great, we are thinking of tamarindo beach, flamingo beach and Puerto Viejo
