I know this may seem like a ridiculously detailed question, but I am traveling with 4 "newbies" (ladies who have never traveled outside the US before) so the more details I have nailed down before we go the better for all of us!
One day we plan to go to the Fornillo beach. I understand we need to rent the chairs and umbrellas. Do we just sit down on the one we want and then they come to us to get paid? Or is there a booth there where you pay first and then choose your chair?
Similar question for Laurito beach. From reading (lots) I understand it is best to take the Da Adolfo boat (with the red fish) over (as opposed to the boat with the mermaid). Do we pay for our chair/umbrella rental when we board the boat, or pay someone when we get to the beach? Same procedure as at Fornillo?
Last question (for now). I have read that a good way to get around town (especially going uphill) is to take the "internal bus" (is it orange?). Do we need to buy tickets for the internal bus like we would for the SITA bus? If so, where would be get them? We are staying in a house that isn't too far from the beach (on Via dei Gladioli).
