Rioja Renta Car

I'm trying to rent a 4x4 for 4 people in Golfito and drop it in Dominical. I can find 2 options:
1. Rioja Renta Car (looks like a small operation).
2. Solid

Does anyone know anything good or bad about Rioja?
The Solid rental web site allows a different drop-off location, but says "Please coordinate with us at the counter." Is this an added fee? Any ideas?

Getting from San Jose to Tamarindo

Hi there,

I'll be arriving in San Jose on the 2nd of March and need to go to Tamarindo for the 3rd. I would like to take buses as I assume those are most economical. Any advice on taking a bus to Tamarindo from San Jose? Do they run often? What bus station would I go to? Would I have to stop in Liberia and then change?

Thanks

Ben

~4 weeks in Costa Rica

Hello!

My family will be spending around 4 weeks in Costa Rica this March/April as part of an 11-week trip to Central America. We have three kids, ages 13, 11, and 7. We are active outdoor people and looking for a good range of what the country has to offer: rain/cloud forests, volcanos, beaches, adventure tours, etc.

I've been reading a lot and am a little overwhelmed at how many amazing-sounding destinations there are. We don't want to be constantly on the move, so I want to narrow it…

SJO to nicoya by bus (via puente villa bonita and otherwise downtown connection)

I was going to tack on to two other older threads to request more recent info but they were locked by a moderator for some reason. also, i originally sent this post to all of central america instead of just costa rica and couldn't edit it to change the country so in effect this a repost. sorry.

Is Pura Vida Eh? legitimate?

I'm booking a trip to Costa Rica and I came across this website for Pura Vida, Eh? Incorporated: http://puravidaeh.ca/about/

They have the same exact packages as other tour companies but they will tack on an extra discount (e.g. desafio/anywherecostarica have the tour for $70, somehow puravidaeh offers it for $60) and I'm trying to figure out if it's legit or if there is a catch.

Has anyone ever heard of this company or know how it works? Why are they able to offer cheaper packages than other…
