I just want to let anyone considering hiring a driver (something we did and recommend) that we found a very professional one. (We found him here) Jonathan Sedo picked us up right on time in San Jose and drove us to Manuel Antonio. Then back again when we left. He was very professional, knowledgable and comfortable. Cool guy - dental student. He speaks perfect english. Drove small SUV.
We Were pretty leary as he is an "individual" rather than a company - and we wired our money to him in advance - after doing it - I wondered if he would show. He did. He values his reputaion - and is a stand up guy based on our experience. My husband was so glad to be able to concentrate on the beautiful scenery rather than unfamiliar (narrow!) roads and traffic.
