We are coming to the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area the first week in December. Our hostess has recommended that we rent a car with 4 wheel drive, saying that the road from the villa where we are staying (just south of Quepos) to the beach is steep and gravel.
I was brought up and learned to drive in New England, in the 40s and 50s, with some pretty tough winters, with plenty of snow. I'm a competent driver of station wagons to MotorHomes.
Am I really going to have a problem with a 2 wheel drive rental car if I don't go "off-road"?
