I'd found a car rental agency that would negotiate with me and saved me some money on a car rental. They beat the lowest price I could find otherwise. It's the same here as it was in Guatemala. All the car companies charge an insurance fee for third party liability that almost exactly doubles the cost of the rental. That was a rude surprise last year in Guatemala. This year I asked about it and included it in my comparisons.
On the drive from the airport in Liberia to my room in Playas de Coco I discovered that they weren't kidding when they said this is the rainy season here. The skys simply opened up, visibility went way down and I picked my way through unfamiliar territory, trying to follow the directions I'd been given. I'm writing this blog so, obviously, it all worked out and I got here... wet... but "home" for the next 2 weeks.
