    I hope you don't mind answering a few questions about the Buena Vista Lodge and your trip. In just a few days from now, we leave for our first trip ever to Costa Rica. We are seasoned travelers and usually do it all ourselves without a tour company or travel agent. The Trip Advisor community is always such a great help. 1. Do we need to rent an SUV for sure? 2. What do we need to know about car rental insurance in Costa Rica? My passport is American and my hubby's is UK. 3. How long does it take to drive to this lodge from Liberia airport? 4. We have three nights in this area. What should we do with our two full days? 5. We like good, , fresh, healthy, tasty food that isn't overcooked or overpriced. How does Buena Vista Lodge rate? Thank you so very much!
