I have booked my return from Costa Rica, but am having trouble with my arrival.
I have a house reserved in Santa Elena on Saturday (3/3). I can arrive in SJO on Friday at 3pm. In another post I was told that there was nothing in particular between the two. So what do I do? I don't really like cities, so going into San Jose isn't all that interesting, but if I did that, would I rent a car at the airport and drive in, or get a shuttle of some sort and rent a car in San Jose the next day?
My other option is to arrive into LIR at 9:35PM, stay near the airport, and drive to Santa Elena the next day. Is that practical? Would I rent my car at the airport, or the next day? Where would I want to stay Friday night?
Would there be time to visit Rincon on the drive to Santa Elena on Saturday?
Sadly, I can't get into LIR any earlier in the day on Friday; that would be perfect.
Any advice on this dilemma would be appreciated.
