Car Rentals in Costa Rica
Think twice before renting a car in Costa Rica; road conditions are poor (four-wheel-drive vehicles are safest), local drivers can be reckless, and theft is a problem. But a car is handy if you’re destination-hopping and don’t want to negotiate myriad bus schedules. Most major international agencies (such as Avis and Hertz) have offices in Costa Rica. Economy Rent a Car (877-326-7368 or 011-506-299-2000; economyrentacar.com) is the country’s largest domestic rental company.
