Manuel Antonio to Dominical

Hi all,

Staying in M.A as part of a longer trip and hoping to do a day trip to Dominical for some surfing considering renting a car vs taxi vs private transfer. Car rental seems to be the most economical. So a few questions:

Any idea of the cost of a taxi each way? Are there taxis readily available in Dominical for the way back?

If we choose to drive it looks like it's all paved highway ? Anything I should be aware of about this drive? How long of a drive is it? I've read anything between 25 mins to an hour!

Thanks!

Teresa

It is a 45 minute drive. I would rent a SUV and explore the area a bit... Check out some beaches and waterfalls.

It is a flat straight highway. No, the SuV suggestion was for waterfalls and some of the restaurants in the hills above. In town you are fine with a regular car.

The main HWY is totally paved beautiful easy driving road. The road from the main HWY to the beach ..although very short ride has big pot holes. You could just maneuver around if driving slow.
