"Rent a four wheel drive" Car Rental - 2 Wheel Drive or 4WD Tip by SenoraSusan

The roads are not THAT bad. Having your own car allows you to stop when you want. Better photo ops. Lots of petty theft though and you must sign a paper saying you will not leave ANYTHING inside the car.
Rent online BEFORE you get to Costa Rica. $$$$ at the last minute.
