Tips for a Smooth Car Rental Experience in Costa Rica

  • Review Local Driving Regulations: Familiarize yourself with Costa Rican driving laws, including speed limits and mandatory insurance. Remember, seat belts are required for all passengers, and mobile phone use while driving is prohibited without a hands-free device.

  • Choose the Right Insurance: Costa Rica requires specific insurance for car rentals, so make sure to understand what's included in your rental and what additional coverage you might need.

  • Be Prepared for All Types of Roads: While major highways are in good condition, secondary roads can be challenging, especially in rainy season. An SUV or 4x4 is recommended for those planning to explore rural areas or national parks.

  • GPS Navigation is Key: With many roads unmarked and tricky to navigate, a GPS can be invaluable in helping you reach your destination without hassle.
