We will be arriving in San Jose, spending a night in Heredia, spending a couple of nights exploring Arenal and/or Monteverde and then checking into the Riu Palace (where transportation will no longer be an issue) for a few days and flying out of Liberia.
1) Are one way car rentals feasible (picking up in San Jose and dropping off somewhere near the Riu Palace)?
2) How long are the following drives:
- Heredia to Arenal
- Arenal to Monteverde
- Monteverde to Riu Palace
3) Would a standard car (e.g. Toyota Yaris) be OK, or is 4WD needed?
We would be traveling in April.
