getting around Santa Teresa

hello everyone

will be coming to stay at at cottage near Pranamar in a couple months and wondering, how easy is it to make a grocery run? We want to eat out a few nights but also might want to take some meals in our cottage. Can we take a taxi? should we rent an ATV? From all I've read, the roads are pretty bad and we don't really want to rent a car (seems like driving might not be a relaxing activity). Also wondering if there are restaurants cheaper than Pranamar within walking distance. We are happy to walk a mile or so. Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

You can grab a cab, hitch a ride or rent a Quad or a bicycle while you are here. All of the choices are easy to do.

There are a few restaurant choices within walking distance of Pranamar. A landmark, El Ray Patricio has just re-opened their restaurant and is a hit as usual!! Some restaurants close for the rainy season and re-open in late Oct. early Nov. Some new ones open, some old ones don't....it is always a coin-flip, and things are always changing! When you get here, you will find everything you will need. No worries!
