Upcoming trip in mid-Feb: My family is staying 1 night in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui before heading to La Finca Lodge in Platanar, which will be our home for three nights. After our overnight in PVdS, we plan to grab a tax over to La Selva OTS for the 8am guided tour, then taxi back to pick up our luggage afterward. This is a short distance so should be fine.
My concern is how best to get from Sarapiqui over to La Finca Lodge. It looks like 1+ hour drive and that could get expensive in a taxi. Should I ask the hotel to recommend a driver? All advice greatly appreciated.
