Eight Days Traveling in Costa Rica, Where Should I go?

Eight days traveling in Costa Rica I recommend you fly into the Liberia International airport located in the northern part of Costa Rica, rent a car, and drive around 45 minutes  (good roads) to one of the NW Pacific beaches for four  nights and then drive to the Arenal Volcano -La Fortuna area-4 hours  (good roads) for another three nights  (if your are staying 8 days.) You will probably need to say near the Liberia airport the last night, depending on what time your return home flight departs.

If you have to fly into the San Jose international airport, then rent a car, drive to Arenal Volcano area  3.5 hours-good road.   Read my article  under category ” Driving to Costa Rica’s tourist destinations” for best route from  San Jose  international airport to Arenal.  Stay there  3 nights  then drive to one of the NW Pacific beaches for 3 nights (this drive is very scenic and takes 4 hours)  on the 7th day you will  need to drive back ( 4 hour trip) to the San Jose international airport area  (spend one night there around the airport) to catch your return flight home.

Sounds like a lot of driving but the drives are very scenic and the roads are good.   Also read my posts about Arenal Volcano National Park under category National Parks of Costa Rica  or  (go to the search box for quickly finding it).

If you choose this itinerary at Arenal you will see howler monkeys,  the Arenal  erupting at night, gorgeous rain forest, do a zip line tour, walk high above the canopy of the  rain forest  on man made bridges,  hike the Arenal volcano National Park, bath in a hot springs,   visit an organic Eco Farm, and much more.

On the NW Pacific beaches swim in the blue green waters, go surfing, collect shells on the beach, get a gorgeous tropical suntan, eat fresh sea food,   go deep sea fishing,  sailing,  read a good book, and just simply RELAX!
