Transportation from SJO to Tabacon

We'll be arriving SJO @7pm in late Oct. Is it best to rent a car that night to do the 2 hr drive to Tabacon or wait till morning? And if we do not rent a car, are you familiar with a good transportation company? If we stay near the airport to drive the next morning what hotel do you recommend for 1 night?

First time traveler to Costa Rica so thank you!

Tabacon Grand Spa in La Fortuna? It is min 3 hrs drive from SJO. With sunset at 6 pm, narrow and winding road and possible fog and/or rain, it is better to stay first night near the airport. Plenty of hotels near the airport or in Alajuela, chose according to your budget.

What many of my clients do is get a driver to bring them to La Fortuna and then rent a car the next day in town. This is MUCH less stressful of a way to get here since you will have traveled all day and won't be familiar with the roads. Waking up to the birds and view of the volcano is pretty awesome. That's what I would suggest! You can always drop off the car at SJO airport on the way back. In Fortuna the car rental companies are: Alamo, Adobe, Trebol, Mapache. Enjoy!
