4/25-5/2 Santa Teresa, ATV for Week?

Hello Everyone,

We're making our final preparations for our trip next week to Santa Teresa and are considering an ATV rental instead of a rental car for our week's stay. We'll be flying into Tambor, with taxi service planned to and from the airport. We aren't planning any long distance trips, but would like transportation to get us to restaurants, bars, etc. and to just have some 'wheels' for the week to tour around a bit. Would this be generally recommended?

Also, any suggestions for live music? We're looking for a laid-back reggae, rock, jam-band type of vibe. We also love beer, any place with an unusually good selection?

Renting a Quad is typical....lots of companies to choose from, but not inexpensive. The cost of renting a vehicle is almost the same price. Having some type of transportation is a good idea because everything is very spread out and it is nice to have the freedom to explore and be on your own schedule.

Live music can be found at a couple of places in the area, you will have to check on what is happening when you get to Santa Teresa, sometimes things happen at the drop of a hat. Costa Rican beer is either Pilsen or Imperial. A few places have some imported beer and you can find some in the local grocery stores. Not much of a selection if you are a connoisseur, you may be disappointed.

Powday, where are you staying? I am planning a trip for mid-May and hoping to have Santa Theresa on my itinerary. Was thinking of just doing an ATV rental too. ARe you arranging beforehand or when you get there?

Please, please post a trip report when you come back!! And have a wonderful time!

We're going to be staying at Villas Hermosas. Since our booking, we've been in touch with the owners, who have been extremely helpful. We're flying into Tambor and they are making arrangements for taxi service when we arrive.

Because we don't plan on going far, we opted to have an ATV instead of a rental car for transportation, and VH has made arrangements for one to be waiting when we arrive. My understanding is that you don't need to reserve in advance, but we figured it would be nice to have one waiting.

We're really looking forward to some sun, waves, and a nice laid-back experience. TR to follow.

Great idea...just bring some ponchos in case of some rain!
