So glad I found this thread! My FI are planning to honeymoon in Costa Rica for about 2 weeks after our wedding. We plan to fly into San Jose, explore and move around and end up flying out of Liberia back home. Any input/advice would be great!

I would say Tamarindo is the most crowded. It was a great place for beginners, but if you're looking for more secluded areas with bigger surf go to Playa Granda or Avellanas. I would recommend renting a car. The roads are not the best to drive on, but if you get an SUV you'll be fine. There are signs all over the place pointing to the next town.
Happy to help, PM if you want more information.

I used to go to Tamarindo growing up and loved it but it is a lot more crowed now. But I believe Cala Luna is a little outside of the area. I would fly into Liberia directly (no need to go through SJO) and drive or be drived to Tamarindo area.

Here is a link:
La Mansion Inn (Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor
In fact, it was the 2009 winner for Best Romance/Luxury Hotel in the area. When we went earlier this year..it was ranked #1....now I see it is at #10...the Trip Advisor ratings are always up and down. By the way, Mango Moon which was mentioned above is also highly rated. From the link I posted, you can get to links to all of the other hotels in Manual Antonio.

2 weeks is very reasonable. We did 9 days and stayed in San Jose 1 night, Arenal 3 nights, Manual Antonio 3 nights and back to San Jose 1 night. I used an on-line travel service called Latin Destinations: Latin America Vacations, Central America Vacations, South America Vacations, Mexico Trips that was AMAZING!! They handled everything...all of our transfers....and there were several including a flight from Arenal to Quepos/Manual Antonio. Our drivers were always early on right on time. They booked the rooms...basically...it was effortless. You can customize the trip you want for VERY reasonable prices. As I said above, we stayed in THE most fabulous hotel in Manual Antonio in my opinion and the best hotel in San Jose..... all for less than $3,300 for both of us for 9 days transfers included.

Also, if you end up going to Manuel Antonio then you MUST go to Kapi Kapi (Kapi Kapi, Manuel Antonio National Park - Restaurant Reviews - TripAdvisor) for dinner one night! My fiance and I were in MA for 5 nights and we ate at Kapi Kapi 2 of them, despite all the amazing restaurants that are there. It has been almost a year since our trip, yet we still talk about how incredible that food was on a regular basis. We are total "foodies", love to go out and try all the top restaurants in our city and wherever we travel, and few have compared to Kapi Kapi!
