Santa Teresa..... you are quite right that everything is a bit closer together and the beach is much nicer and it is convenient when you don't have a car.

Yes, you need a dirvers license for an atv.

these two sites are handy for maps and accommodations:

Meli Melo is close to many stores, the beach and restaurants. You won't need any transportation unless you intend on going off exploring. Perhaps rent a bicycle if you want to get around.....

We recently traveled to CR and Santa Teresa was more our style. It is off the beaten path, even though a little strip mall was recently built, but still had services within walking distance that we wanted...grocery store, small restaurants, etc. The grocery has pretty much everything you need. Mal Pais is a bit more remote…not really navigatable on foot. Mal Pais has very few restaurants/services. However, if we were serious surfers or really wanted to be away from it all, we probably would have liked Mal Pais better.
