Arenal and MA, rental car and mass transit?

We going for 5 days, the first 2 around Arenal and then 3 days to MA.

We're renting a car for Arenal but it doesn't look like we'll need it for MA, although I'd like to check out Ballena. I'm trying to decide if it makes sense to drive back from Arenal to San Jose to drop off the car and catch a van to MA or should we just take the car to MA? I would think that for transport back to the airport for our flight home, Interbus would be easier than finding the airport and car returns but we also don't want to waste 1/2 a day in the middle of our trip with rental return and finding transport to MA.

Also, when looking at rentals, are all the SUVs 4x4 or should I call and ask?

Hi Paulp100.

Im from CR and I can tell you that renting a car is the best way to travel in CR and cheaper than transfers in most of the cases.

If you get a GPS your trip is going to be nice and easy.

It is not necessary 4wd in MA but it is in some of the areas of arenal.

careful about where to get a car, I always tell travelers to call straight, avoid booking on line, and ask for a quote that includes all the necessary to drive in CR.

Hope this info helps you.
