Itinerary for drive from Heredia to Papagayo Peninsula

I am travelling with family, including 2 teens. After attending wedding in Heredia, we have 4 days to spend before flying home from Liberia airport. We plan to spend our last 2-3 nights on the Papagayo Peninsula. Any recommendations for places to stay/stop for 1-2 nights on the way (and to break up the 4-5 hour drive)?

Driving from Heredia to Papagayo you can stop at Arenal volcano for one or two nights. The road from Heredia to Arenal is stunning if you take the route through Poas Volcano. It takes about 3 hours but the surroundings and landscape is just beautiful.

Then from Arenal to Papagayo you ll be driving around Lake Arenal which is also beautiful road and if you are lucky enough you may see some wildlife: Coaties, Sloths, Toucans....

Enjoy your ride!

Good advice by Erick...

You can find a way to get into road 27th...is a toll road...that will take you all the way until you meet again with Pan Am Hwy...that detour is about 15 minutes from Caldera...

BAck to Pana Am Hwy...drive all the way to Limonal nice tiny vilage...is a roadadside restaurant call MI FINCA...stop there and admire the great red macaws...green macaws...toucans...flying free...as thye have to be...we do not like wild life behind bars...

Then keep driivng all the way to Liberia great road..take te detour into Papagayo...and shop around for hotels...many choices many beaches.
