Arenal to Manuel Antonio Tour along the way?

We are two couples in our 50's and early 60's and will be traveling in January. We will hire a driver to take us from Arenal to Manuel Antonio, and we were thinking it might be fun to stop somewhere along the way and do a tour. We are open to most activities (except zip lining) and probably need to keep the tour to 3 hours or less. Do you have any suggestions for a tour along the way before we get to Manuel Antonio?

Also, when you hire a driver (such as Tucan Limo) will they be willing to take us to the tour and wait? Is there an extra charge for that normally?

Some tours you can enjoy on the way are the Pacific Aerial Tram, The outriggers canoeing, the Crocodile and bird safari boat tour. Most companies will not charge extra for tour or lunch stops on the way as long as it is not a detour. Ask the company you hire about it, as some might have different poilicies.

I would suggest you check this link of shuttles and private transport usually recommended here on the Forum tripadvisor.ca/Travel-g291982-c109576/Costa-…

I personally like to recommend Danny Jiminez or Juan Carlos, both courteous, bilingual service, and willing to work with your plans.

As to tours, perhaps Iguana Tours in Quepos/Manuel Antonio http://www.iguanatours.com/ could put together something based on your activity level. I have recommended many travelers (and family) with great results.

Have fun planning your vacation.
