Drive from La Fortuna to Santa Theresa

We are attending a wedding in ST in late May. We plan to make a stop in LF for three days on our way. We are working with a travel planner who suggests getting a driver.

What are the pros and cons of driving a 4 wheel drive in May? How are the roads and road signs as we approach La Fortuna.

Have any suggestions on day activities in Santa Theresa?

Thanks

No problem at all with any car around La Fortuna...you do not need a 4x4...maybe around ST...

I moved here a little over a year ago and I put together a "Tips to driving in CR" document that I'd be happy to send to you. This forum doesn't allow "attachments" so if you'd like this please just e-mail me under "private message" your e-mail and I'll send it to you.

As for the pros & cons of a 4x4-I don't think it's ever a bad idea to have one, usually the deterrant is the price and nothing else.

I must clarify. I meant the pros and cons of renting a car vs. hiring a driver.
