I'm planning a trip in January or February 2014, and I'm interested in going to Rincon de la Vieja. Is it possible to get there without a rental car? I'm travelling solo, so I'd prefer to take shared shuttles or public buses to keep costs down.
I haven't bought a plane ticket yet, but I'm probably flying into Liberia. I'd like to stay in Rincon for a couple days, and I was looking into staying at Hacienda Guachipelin or Rincon de la Vieja Mountain Lodge. It looks like you could walk to the park entrance from the Mountain Lodge? Does the Hacienda have a shuttle or something to get to the park entrance?
