Casa Pelon/Playa Marsella to SJDS.

Hey all.

Heading to Casa Pelon over New Years. Did some googling and searching, but I can't seem to find any consistent information about getting from Marsella to SJDS. If we want to head into town in the early morning, (And head back a little late at night, maybe even New Years night!) are we going to have any problems getting a taxi? About how far of a drive are we away? Any suggestions on how to get there/back again?

Any information would be really helpful.

Casa Pelon should be able to connect you with a local and have that person trasport you back.

It's a $20US to $25US taxi ride into SJDS, and Rodolfo is right, have your hotel set something up well in advance. If you use the recommended taxi to get into town, I would recommend you don't pay him until he picks you up and brings you back to the hotel. New Years isn't the same as N/American celebrations, as most Nica families get together for food and a house party, some of the Gringoized restaurants and bars will have something but it won't be Times Square. Go Flames!
