Arenal or Monteverde. We would like to do zip lining, hiking and anything adventurous.

From Santa Ana, plan on at least 3 hours to Arenal and around 4 hours to Monteverde each way, so you'd be best off doing an overnight (at least). Good van-boat-van service between Monteverde and Arenal makes that about a 3.5 hour trip one-way.

These areas are no parks...dont think of Disney - I dont know if you are thinking about that kind of place, but down here it is not like that. Arenal and Monteverde are towns, where you can find different attractions and things to do but all in a natural setting. There is a wide range of activities that you can do on each place, but they all take from 2 hours to half or full day tours. My recommendation is that you dont plan to do this from SAnta to go and return on same day, but actually overnight on each area. Arenal is worth at least 2 nights and so is Monteverde. You could a one night, but you will really enjoy the areas if you plan on at least two nights. As Eliot said, you can travel between areas without needing to return to SAn Jose
