Car rental agencies abound
in Costa Rica. Renting a car in the high season ( from December
to April) costs between $45.00 a day for a standard car and
$70.00 a day for a four wheel drive car, including insurance.
For the low season the rates are between $35.00 a day for
a standard car and $64.00 for a four wheel drive car. During
the high season you must reserve the vehicle in advance. Many
roads become impassable for a regular car during the green
season, and rental car agencies will tell you if you need
a four wheel drive car. A major credit card or a $500.00 to
$1000.00 deposit for the deductible is required. All cars
carry the "Collision Damage Waver".
