Default Central America Rough Itenarary!

Tell me what you think! I know we just got back a few weeks ago from our last trip, but fuck, what can you do. We are heading out early Oct. for about 6-7 weeks. This is a first draft.
Start:
Belieze City 2 nights
Ferry to Caulkers Caye 2 nights,
Ferry Turneffe Island 2 nights,
Ferry to Dangriga 3 nights,
Bus to Punto Gordo 3 nights, hit the main Mayan Villages
Bus to Laceiba, Honduras 1 night,
Ferry to Roatan 3 nights,
Ferry to Utila 2-3 nights,
Ferry back to Lacieba, fly to Managua, Nicaragua 2 nights,
Bus to San Juan Delsur 2 nights,
Bus to Coco, Costa Rico, 3 nights,
Bus to Montverde - Hit the Zip lines and Rainforests, 4 nights,
Bus to Lafortuna Arenal 3 nights
Bus to San Jose 2 nights,
Bus to Manuel Antonio 5-6 nights
Bus to Limon 4 nights
Bus to Parismina or Tortugeruo 3 nights
Bus to San Jose, jump a plane

So in CR, I would also like to throw Manzanillo, Puerto Viejo (for sure!), Cahuita, Cocles. I hear a ton about Puerto Viejo, and am def. going to work that in the route. And how about Santa Alena while in the Montverde area?
Please keep in mind that there is no true timelines, and that the number of nights is all determined upon arrival. You know what I mean But we are shooting for around 6 weeks or so. So we will gladly take all opinions and thoughts, suggestions or mild ramblings. So wow, we should be leaving in about 8 weeks. I need to get my shit together yo

I was looking at your inten. and I was shouting "Wheres Puerto Viejo, screw Limon!" Then I looked down at the next line. From what I hear the Caribbean coast is like going into a totally different country, aside from Costa Rica that is. Chris and I will head up to Puerto Viejo in about 3 weeks so I'll let you know how it is. Apparently, Rastas are plentiful and most people we talked to were offered ganja three times a day! Of course, they also mentioned many work for the police, I haven't meet anyone that was arrested yet though. Manzanillo is totally an awesome day trip, or trips. For the Pacific beach towns I've heard Uvita is very nice to relax at, most tourists go to Manual Antonio and Quepos. We're actually debating which pacific town to go to next week because Manual's park is so tempting. I'll let you know though! Also, I have heard a few people mention Santa Alena, but I don't recall what was said for or against it.

Have fun researching! Also a neat book to check out is the Insight guide for Costa Rica, gives a lot of information and photos.
