We are flying into Tamarindo and then transported to Brasalito. We will be here for 3 full days and then on to Arenal.
1)Do we need a rental car to really explore the area? We're staying at Hotel Conchal, which looks absolutely charming.
2)Who are reputable tour operators in the area, must do activities. We love to kayak, snorkle and plain old exploring a new area, meeting the locals etc. We are open to new activities as well.
