Hi, we have two families who will be traveling from Liberia airport to Santa Teresa in Feb. However, we are not leaving the same time. We are trying to figure out the most logical and economical way for both families (one w/ 4 people, the other with 5) to get to and from Liberia airport and then around Santa Teresa and environs for 5 days.
One thought is each family could get a van/driver to take us down there and then rent one large vehicles for the 9 of us to get around, since we will mostly be doing things together, or two vehicles.
Option 2 is for both families to rent cars since we are going to and from the airport on different days. Option 3 is to get transport there and back and then take taxis or hire a driver just when we want to go somewhere, like Montezuma.
We are staying at Fuego and I assume we don't need to use a car every day, but we definitely want to do some exploring, horseback, surf lessons, etc. I know sometimes the tour operators will also pick you up.
Any suggestions? I know if we each rent a car from the airport for the whole 8 days, it will cost about $800+ per family. So to sum up, I guess we' re trying to see if there's a way for both families to get to Santa Teresa and back (on different days) plus get around while we're there for less than $1,600.
