We will be driving from the San Jose Airport to Samara. Our plane arrives mid afternoon so we are planning on driving just a couple hours the first day. We are looking for a little town that we could stay in that would be about 1/2 way. It would help if the town had a yummy restaurant since we'll be arriving around dinner time. Any suggestions? We were thinking of not taking the ferry since we have extra time. Is that a good or bad idea? Thanks!
