    We booked for two couples from 12 to 18 March 2017 to Cabinas Pura Vida. We rent a 4X4 vehicle in San Jos Airport. Then we go a few days to Quepos. Could you tell me if it is possible to go from Quepos to Drake 4x4? I would also like to know whether to book in advance a guide to visit the Corcovado Park, or we can arrange with you when we arrived. Thank you for your answers Nadine et Eric Ribaucourt
