ATV rental/money question

Hi everyone. Traveling in March for a week and staying at Esencia in Santa Teresa. Any advice on whether ATV rental is necessary to get around? If so, any suggestions for rental places? Also wondering whether I'll need to exchange money or is it ok to come with just USD and credit cards?

Although Esencia is quite central to many restaurants and close to the beach, you may want to rent a quad to do some sight-seeing at some point of your vacation here.

You can use US$ for purchases, but you will not get as good a rate as the bank exchange. Credit Cards are not accepted at most of the small sodas and some of the more upscale restaurants, so it is best to have some Costa Rican Colones in your pocket. There are many quad rentals in the area and they compete for pricing....you just have to check around. Things change down here by the day, so pointing you to any particular low-cost quad rental is often not accurate.
