Would it be too much to try to stay in Arenal, Tamarindo to surf and Manuel Antonio in only 8 days?? Any opinions would be helpful! Thanks so much, we are going 8-2-2005!

My opinion is that that's enough time. If that's how much time you have available, you should be able to see & do a lot and have 8 full, fun days.

I spent seven days between Arenal, Jaco for surfing and then driving along the coast and along the Panamerican Highway back to San Jose and it was enough time to do all that I wanted to!

Enjoy it!

Be sure not to miss the beauty of the Central Valley with its Volcanoes Irazu and Poas with its gorgeous waterfalls Both of which, unlike the Arenal often clouded in so rarely even see.. you can Hike on the SUMMIT of the other 2 Above the clouds and look down into the craters and Awesome Views On a clear day you can se both oceans
Many travelers don't know that you can book ALL tours fromt he Central Valley at no extra charge for transportation
email me for more details

Have fun in Costa Rica I have lived here 15 years and own a gorgeous B&B on a fruit and coffee farm just 10 minutes from town and 25 minutes from Airport
