We are planning a trip to CR with our three kids, aged 3, 7 and 10. We were hoping to not rent a car, but assumed that there may be an occasion or two where we would need one. I just read that the car seat regulations are pretty strict. This would mean three car seats. I don't want to carry these around as luggage if we are only going to use them a couple times.
We are looking at going to Monteverde, and either Nicoya Peninsula, or Manuel Antonio, after flying into San Juan. Can most things be accessed without a private car? Also, would seats be required in the hotel shuttles?
