"Rent a car and tour this country yourself" Car Rental - Self Drive Tip by gramboman

Car Rental - Self Drive, Costa Rica: 30 reviews and 33 photos

We rented a car for $24 per day including casualty insurance! We were in Costa Rica at the end of their rainy season, and had very little trouble getting around in our 4-cylinder compact car. The roads in this country are great compared to most in Latin America, and you can find a great map <a href="" target="_blank">here.</a>

Another group we saw paid nearly $100 per day for a 4-wheel drive vehicle, and I doubt they saw much that we didn't see ourselves.
