Car Rental

by Nverstop »

Azamara Cruise disembarks in Caldera, Costa Rica. I have never been to Costa Rica. I need to rent a car to travel to my resort. Can anyone help me with 1) are there car rentals at the port, 2) if not, where do we need to go to get a car, and 3) who would you recommend? thanks.

Hi Nverstop,

You will love visiting our country, Caldera is a convenient port to arrive. To answer your questions:

Yes there are rental car options from Caldera/Puntarenas. You can arrange to have a representative from the rental agency meet you at the docks. I would consider using a private transfer when you arrive and then picking up your rental car after you arrive at your first destination. This is a way you can see what our roads are like before committing to driving yourself. Please stay away from a rental car company called ECONOMY. This is a company with several complaints, most others are reputable.

Where are you staying while you are here?

Have a fun trip!

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Costa Rica Driver and Adventure (www.drivercostarica.com) , and Leo Rodriguez and his team for a fist class service and experience throughout our journey. We were a family of 12 (three generations!) and Leo and his team tended to our every need, sensitivity and request with such attention and devotion.  Truly this made our trip stress free and such a pleasant and easy trip throughout.  We found their details by surfing the internet for driving companies and naturlly were aprehensive in booking them with no previous contact or personal recommendation.  

My concerns and anxiety were displaced from the moment our journey started.  We as a family are truly touched by their service and would not hesitate to recommend their services to any travelling party or family looking to explore Costa Rica.  Feel free to get in touch with me personally if you would like a personal recommendation.
