Car and driving questions

Hi, we will be in Playa Grande June 21-28. There are 5 adults and three small children, and we are renting a beach house.

My questions are:

1. How far is Playa Grande from Liberia? (how long will the drive take)

2. We are renting a Toyota 4-Runner and a Toyota Rav 4 for the 8 of us. Is this enough vehicle, or should we just get two 4-Runners? Also, take into consideration how each would do on the road conditions, etc.

The drive should be about 1.5 hours. The roads have been greatly improved in the past year or so, especially the last leg from Huacas to Grande.

There is not much space in the back of the Rav for luggage, so it depends on how much you can bring and will most of it fit in the 4-Runner.

You might want to stock up on groceries on the way, so leave some room for that too. The best option is before you get to Huacas; there is a new supermarket on the right, just before the gas station. They take Visa, so don't worry about changing cash before you get there.
