  1. If you do rent a car, check on what it will cost to park at your hotel. The official hotel’s rate is as $39 per day with in/out privileges. There is a city lot for $13 a day without in/out.

    1. We’re working on a Google Map that (knock wood) we will have out later this week that will tag parking options, food places, ATMs, and a bunch of other things.
