Costa Rica for 7days - Quepos and Jaco/Los Suenos?

Hi everyone. Single 30 something male headed to Costa Rica for xmas and new years to get away from life and family...

Arrival 1:30pm 12/24
Depart 4:15pm 1/2

I had planned to head up to La Fortuna, but the last shuttle I could find leaves at 3pm on 12/24. This means I'm either waiting until xmas day or going somewhere else. Also many La Fortuna hotels are booked up.

I have 12/28 - 1/2 booked at Los Suenos Marriott so I'll be hanging out there and in Jaco. I can still hang with the hostel crowd so may spend more time in Jaco.

Should I still try to make the Arenal/La Fortuna trip, spend a night in San Jose and then head to Quepos/Manuel Antonio, or just go to Jaco for a few nights before staying at Los Suenos? I will probably have a number of cocktails and just wonder around the town, but I also plan on getting some hikes/tours in and possibly fishing/jetskiing when in Los Suenos.

Sorry for the generalities, but didn't realize I'll probably lose a day due to shuttle shcedules and how long it takes to get around in San Jose. I appreciate all suggestions.

First i will say try to make to Arenal/La Fortuna and spend a night in San Jose, its a beatiful city the you can try to go head to Quepos the Jacos. The Hikes tours are awsome also you can try some climbing or rafting. I recommend you this page, its called Yoplan.com i used in my second trip to Costa Rica and help me a lot.
