HELP- Drake Bay or MA and Monteverde?

Hi- I'm going to CR with my special someone in a couple of weeks and need some advice. I was originally planning to split our 11 day vacation between Manual Antonio and Monteverde but, then having been even more research Drake Bay sounds much better. So is it Drake Bay or MA and Monteverde?

Keep in mind either of us dives or sportsfishes. And I'm crazy about hiking, swimming and biking. However, my girlfiend is more of a good food, book and beach person.

During our April trip to CR, we had a much more memorable wildlife experience in Drake Bay at Corcovado than in Manuel Antonio. MA can get very busy, but Drake Bay has a remote feeling without having to travel very far.
