I am traveling into Quepos and I am not sure if I want to explore and rent a car, mix with the locals and take the bus (is that a bit much with luggage) or spring the big bucks for hotel van service? I have traveled cross country and thru US mountainous territory so I am sure this wouldn't be a problem. I want to be safe and smart also, I am traveling with my 16 yr old son. I would just like to hear some feedback from anyone who has done it. Thanks!
