Getting around
If you are renting a car or using our driver services. Navigating from the Sunset is easy to do. There are only a few main roads in Costa Rica and although they can be rough in spots, we are here to make sure you know where you are going and how to get there. I draw maps for almost all our groups, even when they have GPS because I will call your attention to certain landmarks or signs that won't be marked on printed maps. We are here to make your getting to where you need to be hassle free!
