We're still in the early stages of planning, but I'm looking for some advice to narrow down our search.
We're looking at spending a week at a vacation rental in Manuel Antonio and then a week in Nuevo Arenal (or vice versa). It looks like a 5-6 hour drive, so I'm looking for a good mid-way point to break it up a little. Is San Ramon a good stopping point for a night or two? It looks both easier to get to and less crowded than Monteverde.
Anyone have advice for a unique alternative? Any comments on our choices of Manuel Antonio and Nuevo Arenal?
