Rental Car Service

Rental vehicles from all major car rental companies are available at either international airport. For your convenience, we can arrange for your car rental with our vendor at preferential rates. It is highly recommended to rent a GPS unit with your rental car as road signs or numbers are not well marked in Costa Rica. Please enter our hotel name or GPS coordinates N10º 42min,49sec / W84º 58min,72sec to obtain driving directions to our property. Roads to reach us from either international airport are paved, secondary roads to explore the area tend to be gravel, so we recommend renting an all-terrain vehicle anywhere you drive in Costa Rica.
