A day hike around Monte Verde is good - you can either do one of the canopy hikes or go to the national park (St. Elena). Lots of hot springs around the area for a rest, some with views of the volcano. Manuel Antonio is a good beach location. The national park nearby has excellent wildlife viewing. Renting a guide to point of the harder to see wildlife is a good idea.

Make sure that you get a car with plenty of tread on steel-belted tires. Many of the roads in Costa Rica have very sharp rocks sticking up out of the dirt all over. These will rip up inadequate tires in short order. This is the rule...not the exception!
