Car rental, communications, and refresh of hotel information

COMMUNICATION: https://costaricacellularconnection.com/

(Below from one of the Costa Rica Yahoo Groups)

Car: I have been using Sun Valley Car Rental in Santa Ana for several years now.
While one has to pick up the vehicle the saving are well worth the effort. I
haven't found anyone that can beat the rates which include insurance and towing.
Call Andy at 2282-7013. Feel free to tell him I recommended you.

Hotels around the country:

Local: Hotel Luisiana (nearby town of Santa Ana)...http://www.hotelluisiana.com/

Hotel Posada Canal Grande...http://www.hotelcanalgrande.com/

San Jose: (special rate...mention my name)

Beaches! Jaco (nearest beach on the Pacific)

Park)

More as it happens!

Hi Sharin, is there anyway to reach Andy to find out about car rental other than a long distant call? Email? Skype? Website? We are coming a week early and suspect we need a car. Will we need it for the week we are together or are there enough vehicles between the locals and Steve?

Hi Sanda and Brian,

I have an email in to my connection with Andy the Car Dude. I'll get back to you as soon as I hear.

Vamos (http://vamos4x4.com/vamos/), Service (http://www.servicecarrental.com/), and Thrifty (http://www.thrifty.com/local/index.aspx?locationcode=sjo)rental companies have been recommended as well.

Hi again Sanda and Brian...and others who may be interested. My present tenant, who has rented from Andy, suggested Skyping Andy...says he's just a low tech guy who wants to hear a human voice:) If you can't Skype him, let me know and maybe I can get my tenant to set something up. Skyping is pretty cheap. What dates are you thinking about? We return to CR on Feb 22, but he may be all rented by then. High season and all. We have a car on the finca, possibly two...and a bilingual taxi driver as well as good public transportation. All depends on where people want to go. It looks like we're talking ~12 people, give or take 2. I'm still waiting to hear from a few. House space is pretty much taken up.
