We are going to be staying in Monteverde at the start of our trip, then plan to go down to somewhere on the Nicoya Peninsula for 3 nights. While there, we're looking to relax...swim, kayak, snorkel. From my research, it seems like Samara might be the best option (I think). Any other suggestions?
Also - would it be best to drive from Monteverde or should we drive back to San Jose and take a puddle jumper to the peninsula? Open to either option.
