My fiance and I are staying in Tamarindo for the month of May, and we wanted to make it out to Witches rock at least once. Last time we were here, we rented a car and drove down to Avellanas and Playa Negra, so I'm not opposed to driving. I was quoted $40 for a shuttle per person if we found 2 other people to go. Is it a difficult drive to do ourselves, or would we be better off taking the shuttle?
Also, my fiance gets a little nervous in surf much bigger than 8 feet...would she be okay at witches rock? I've read it can still be awesome with a small swell, so I'm hoping to find a time where it's not way too big. Any information to help us plan our trip would be awesome..and if anyone else wants to join, let me know!
