Response from Laura:
Eleonora , i honestly think the fact that you didnt get a proper car, not a 4x4, but a taller car than the one you took, made you be annoid in general.
You live in costa rica and you planned your trip through many kilometers along the coast not finding out first the type of roads, and you seem to be totally surprised...
All the coastal road,is unpaved and protected, except very short parts.(therefore is got the great nature you mention!)
You came to punta india from all the south of this peninsula, and that was your choice, not the way most people take to come to us and not the route we suggest..
There arent big strams, really, as you mention.
Got to the place one day later,ok..
Nosara is 9km from punta india(not 15), and yes you had to pay some money in cash.
My answer to you from the very beginning was: take your time!
(meaning , no hurry).
And thats being agressive to you..
