Renting a car in Costa Rica gives you the most freedom to explore the country as you like.
2Costa Rica Travel can help you with rental cars in San José, Tamarindo, Liberia, Jacó and Manuel Antonio. In many cases, you can arrange for a vehicle to be delivered directly to your hotel, or meet you at the airport (international or local). You also can arrange to pick up a vehicle at one location, and then drop it off at another agency location.
2Costa Rica Travel has access to an up-to-date fleet of sedans and 4x4s. On Costa Rica’s roads, it is generally recommended to have a 4WD vehicle, especially in rainy season. In Costa Rica, most cars have manual transmissions; however with car rentals, both automatic and manual transmissions are available, depending on availability and the car model type. 2Costa Rica Travel includes the cost of mandatory car insurance and unlimited mileage in its pricing.
The Costa Rica travel agency has a list of mileage distances and approximate driving times between major Costa Rica towns and cities on their website.
