Which beaches/NP to split our time in please

I have 8 nights to plan in the Manuel Antonio and Ojochal area. The last day we need to be in MA at 7.30am for our shuttle to the airport.

I am wondering if I should split the time - maybe 4 nights MA and then 4 nights Ojochal - with a car for the last 4 days, at local B & Bs/hotels

or if its possible to rent somewhere for a week on this coast where we could visit all location by rental car?

We wish to see wildlife, swim in the sea and snorkel. Maybe boogie board but not surfers..

Manuel Antonio & Ojochal are quite close to each other and I'd say 4 nights is a lot to spend in Manuel Antonio. Why not spend a couple of nights up north like Playa Hermosa (just south of Jaco), 2-3 in MA and 3 in Ojochal? Another option is to go to the Osa for 2-3 nights...it's AMAZING and you can always visit Manuel Antonio National Park from Ojochal so no need to stay in town. That's my 2 cents...
