Driving around Arenal/LaFortuna

We are thinking of renting a car for a day to drive from Los Lagos to Skytrek and La Fortuna waterfall. Is this do-able in a mini or economy car or will we need a 4x4. Thanks

Car will do, no need for extra expense.

Cubanon:

When would you need a 4 X 4...we will be driving from San Jose to Arenal area then to Domenical. What would you suggest?

My amigo Cubanon...the road from Arenal to Dominical is in great condition...I really do not think you need a 4x4...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!
