hiring car drivers/transportation
I'm planning a trip in March with my teenage son - 1 day Villablanca, 3 days Arenal then on to Manuel Antio for 3 days, back to San Jose area (maybe Ville de Ville or Xanadri prior to flight early am).
I do not want to rent a car (I'm not a great driver) so wanted to know about hiring a driver/van to take us between the larger dstinations.
Anybody done this?

Try searching for "private driver" or "private transportation" within this forum, you should come up with lots of helpful info & recommendations for drivers.

Leo Rodriguez is an excellant driver, a college grad, speaks fluent English and is a wealth of information. You can e-mail him at [email protected] and he will assist you, if you are interested. We 50 yr. olds and our then 18 yr. old son really liked Leo when we hired him almost 2 yrs. ago.

Wanted to recommend Oscar, whom we used for our trip.

[email protected] You can get his number by searching on his name. Good luck!

We just got back from Costa Rica on Monday. We used Oscar for four different transfers. He was always on time, professional, neat as a pin and willing to stop where and when you wanted. Really was great using him.. no worries at all.
