Rent a car is a good option to explore Costa Rica and allow you to discover and see more places by yourself(you could have better access to hidden beaches for example), if you prefer independence and flexibility, a rental car may be a good option for you. There are many options of car rental companies with the highest standards of quality and service. It is important to know that in Costa Rica driving could be a challenge because of the difficult road conditions in some locations or lack of signalization and street numbering in others, however with a good road map, and adventurous and positive attitude and a GPS, you can successfully get wherever you want.
