Well....we are slowly getting organized for our trip. The fresh seafood purchase advice and the van rental advice was all good and will be acted on.
On the van rental thing: Hertz will rent a mini-van for about $600. per week. The liability insurance is $11. per day. If you check your particular visa card contract there (may be) auto rental insurance benefits. NOT FOR LIABILITY COVERAGE. In my case there was. Visa sent me a letter explaining that I must check off the box declining the additional insurance on the vehicle and they would cover it. This is for the collision damage insurance portion only.
Now for my request.....We are staying at the Royal Villas and like to walk out for lunch. For lunch I very much like Tortilla Soup and some plain Quesidellas (sp?) I don't care what the other people in my group want!! thats what I want. Also, for dinner I very much like Mahi-Mahi (Dorado). Recommendations very gratefully received.
NOTES: To Mazbook....I did print out your very large restaurant guide, thank you. I see on another post your shop is across from Costa de Oro. I will drop in and say hello after Feb. 18. If memory serves me (at all)back in 2003 there was a side street off the Golden Zone main drag somewhere close to you that about 1 block up there was a very nice small restaurant on the right hand (south) side of the street. They had very good tortilla soup.
To FalconRoger: Are you or did you used to be a realtor? I remember seeing a blue Falcon convertible with a realtor sign on the side of it back in 2003. Nice car. Was that you? If we see around we will say hello.
