Private Driver for 10-15 passengers?

I'm looking for suggestions for a private driver in CR for multiple days this upcoming March for a group trip of 10-15 people, we'll be going from Heredia to Arenal (w/ stop at La Paz), then Arenal to Jaco

Also wondering if anyone has hired a private driver for day trips either in Arenal or Jaco/MA, if so, could you tell me the costs? None of us will have a car, so I thought it might be a good idea to have a private driver for the days when we're in Arenal & Jaco for day trips, going to eat, etc -- might not be too expensive if split between 10+ people?

Thanks in advance!

With a group that size, you can get a cheaper rate. Write to [email protected] and get a quote. (Tell her Sandy says Hi!)

See my review of Danny elsewhere on this site. He's amazing, cheap and both he and his wife has fancy airconditioned vans that seat 10 each.

email: [email protected] and website http://dannytravelscostarica.4t.com . He lives in San Jose, but drives people all over Costa Rica.

ps. His writing English is not the best, so don't be scared if he e-mails you back with imperfect language. He learned his English from living in the States for 3 years so his speaking is impeccable.

Oscar has a van that I think seats up to 15, but you would have to ask him. He gets great reviews on this board and rightly so (we used him in our trip for transfers).

His number is easily found if you search on Oscar in this forum

A great tour guide we had who has his own large van, does a fantastic job of pointing out wildlife and talking about his home country (he has also spent some time in the states, so his English is excellent) is Jose Saenz: [email protected] . He was working for a larger tour company and their itinerary, but based on his experience and talking to all of us, he made a few changes, and they were all right on.
