Staying at Occidental Grand end of June for one week. Interested in a car rental to do some exploring. Plan on maybe visiting Monteverde for the Ziplines, Arsenal, Rincon de la veija, do some shopping, visit some mud baths, etc.
What type of car rental do you recommend? Will we need a 4 X 4?
Also have seen a lot of rental companies charging extras... Any recommendations on who to avoid and who to reserve with?
Any other sites that we should see in the area?
Where is the best shopping for Costa Rica treasures? Interested in wood made items. Where would be a good reasonable priced place?
Lastly, can we bring shells, sand, back to the US from Costa Rica?
Thanks bunches!!!! And can't wait to be and explore the Costa Rican paradise!
