I am considering renting a car mid trip from Tobias Bolaños Airport and driving to arenal. My plane lands at 3:15pm, so by then I will have missed all the 25pp shuttles to arenal volcano. I have decided renting a car is the only option because a private transfer costs 119 each way, not including the costs of taxiing around in la fortuna. I figure i would actually save money if I rent a small economy car. The question is: Should I drop off the rental right after the trip to arenal or should I keep it to get to heredia(peace lodge) and alajueja (vista de valle plantation inn) for 2 nights or should i just keep the car until i leave? I have read that the roads to la foruna are paved, what about around peace lodge and alajuja? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
