Hi, I'm a recent addition to the TA forum and have been reading the last few months of posts and you guys provide an extremely valuable service.
I have been checking into our various options for CR.
We are coming in on Sunday for the last week of July and was planning on doing the first 4 nights at the Arenal Lodge, one night by Poas and the last two in San Jose (to visit friends.)
Figuring about $100 dollars a night in hotels (because we would want the room with a view) plus 350 for the car rental (once you factor in insurance and gas) and about 100 per day in activities per person.
The 5 day budget package with Desafio at $507 a person (and booking the San Jose stuff separately) we'd come out about $500 bucks ahead and not have any headaches...
(also, would a corolla be enough for that itinerary, even to get up to the lodge etc... during the rainy season?)
thanks a million!Edited: 28 June 2011, 04:50
