RIU Guanacaste

We are going to the RIU Guanacaste in May. Does anyone know the RIU's email address so we may send special room requests? Also we are thinking of renting a car and driving to Lake Arenal. We will probably rent a room for the night in the area so we won't be rushed or have to drive in the dark. Any recommendations or suggestions? Also could someone recommend a good private tour company? Can someone recommend a top notch deep sea fishing charter company? And one more question - we are taking my parents who are not in perfect shape - what would be a fun tour to take them on?

Thanks!!

I called Riu and they gave me the following email: sales.sjo@riu.com. Renting a car is a great idea it is a 4 hour drive to Arenal so you really would want to spend 1 or 2 nights there to really enjoy the place. Check with Abobe car rental. Many fishing companies maybe check with yellow finn or the Hotel Ocotal. A nice tour is the Palo Verde boat tour with avisit to guatil pottery

For your parents...maybe nice Palo Verde...it is a nice easy boat ride...they can see a lot of birds...monkies...iguanas...most of the animals that were killed while builiding RIU!

Also around Arenal...Silencio del Campo...most rooms are ground level...not problem for your paretns with steps...or some hills...

I have traveled extensively and have never encountered worse customer service than with the Riu Guanacste. If you cannot even make a reservation, how do you think it will be when you arrive?

maybe the guy in charge of answering email is also the guy in charge of bedbug eradication and he's really busy with the bedbug situation.

wintersucks- May I ask why you choose to stay at a "resort" with such a terrible

reputation?
