Hello all! Firstly, thanks for being so informative on these boards, the knowledge you shared so far is amazing.
A friend and I are arriving in San Jose on August 21st at around 6:30 pm. We decided it'd be best to stay the night there, and plan on traveling into Santa Teresa on the 22nd. (We see the bus we wish to take leaves at 2pm and 6pm.) How has the weather been thus far? Do you think the bus will be operating, or should we plan on renting an ATV? I saw online that sometimes during the green season the roads are impossible to travel with anything other than a 4x4.
In any case, how much money is it to rent a 4x4 or a car to take into Santa Teresa? If we rented it, would we be forced to rent it for the duration of our trip, since we couldn't return it until the day of our departing flight?
Speaking of that- our departing flight is at 7:40 AM... we thought we'd save money, stay up all night, and take a taxi back to San Jose.. is that foolish? Should we head back the night before..? The flight departs on August 29th. We really want to maximize our time in Costa Rica and we are meeting friends who will have arrived in Santa Teresa days before us. They are also staying longer than us.
Will it rain every day?
Thanks in advance!
