          Hello! A few questions about surfing in this location and about Mal Pais Casa Chameleon during the rainy season... We are hoping to go in late July, early August. I've read you should rent an atv to get to the beach. Can you strap your surf board to the atv to get to the beach for surfing? Is this a good place for beginner surfing? My husband surfs and I used to (before I had a baby) so I am basically starting over! We are concerned with actually getting to Mal Pais from the Liberia airport during rainy season. Is it difficult? We are adventurists, but we don't really want to get stuck on the side of the road. haha.

          Hello. Thanks for the great feedback. I do have a couple of questions if you don't mind me asking... Which room did you stay in? Because when I called I asked for a tub and they told me non of the rooms had tubs, yet you stated you had a tub (We are going in Aug. and I have a villa suite reserved). Also, which restaurants in town do you recommend? Thank You Becky
