    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    If we have Thursday morning to Sunday morning at the resort, should we spend one full day at the resort and then Friday and Saturday we can devote to seeing the sites? Which sites would you recommend as not to miss if we only have 3 full days in the area and assuming my children do not want to be up as early as 7:00 am to go on one of the longer tours? Also is there an ATM on site and how much does the taxi fare cost info La Fortuna? Will the driver be able to stop at an ATM if we don't have any cash on hand to pay them?
