Can anyone recommend a reliable driver to bring a family of 5 from the Airport to Arenal at 10pm?

The hotel will do it for $156... should we stay with them?

Also - any car rental recommendations in La Fortuna / Arenal?

Thanks for your thoughts ahead of time!

I just received 2 quotes for $150-160 range for the same trip-family of 4. During daylight though to AOL. I'd say you were given a reasonable rate by the hotel.

I've contacted Alamo to pick up a car in La Fortuna, but would like to check around so I'll watch your post for other options.

My thinking was that we would enjoy the scenery and get acclimated to CR on the first leg of the trip with a private driver. Then we might be more comfortable with our own car.
