I've read thru the forums and have decided we'll hire a driver from SJO to Manuel Antonio and back. It's me, my wife and 2 kids ages 5 and 7.
Some friends have said to just wait till we arrive to find a ride - that it's very easy and you can better negotiate the price.
For what it's worth, we're arriving after 8pm on Apr 12th and plan to spend the night in San Jose and ride down in the morning and travel back in the afternoon for a morning flight the next day.
So - what do you think? WE're not high stress people and can easily go this route if it's easy enough - or we can make arrangements with one of the fine companies that are recommended here.
Pro and Cons of waiting till we arrive?
