KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

  • By booking car hire in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, you'll have the freedom to explore the city's beautiful surroundings. For example, the Cahuita National Park is only around 20 minutes away by car. Similarly, about 20 minutes in the other direction, you can visit the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. With a car, you won't need to worry about bus timetables and can travel around on your own schedule. You can even make the roughly four-hour-long road trip to Costa Rica's beautiful capital, San José.
  • The closest airport in Costa Rica is Limón International Airport. From here, you'll need to organise transportation to the car hire offices which are located off-site, around 10 minutes away by car or bus. Of course, Costa Rica's main airport is Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) in San José. The car hire offices are located outside the Arrivals hall. You'll find a greater variety of car hire companies here. Your vehicle may be located off-site, but in these cases, the company will organise a shuttle for you. Limón International Airport is just over an hour from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, and Juan Santamaría International Airport is just over four hours away.
  • Before using car hire in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, you may want to familiarise yourself with some of the most common Spanish road signs. For example, many bridges in Costa Rica are one-way, so you'll be asked to 'ceda el paso' or 'give way' to traffic coming off the bridge before you can drive on. You may also encounter roads signed with 'no hay paso' or 'do not enter'. It's also important to note that pedestrians don't have right of way, so they won't be expecting you to slow and let them pass, and neither will any vehicles behind you. (Bear this in mind when walking as well).
  • You may want to avoid driving your Puerto Viejo de Talamanca hire car outside the main town at night. There will be very little light, and you'll likely share the road with pedestrians, cyclists and wildlife. Most roads are well paved, but you may encounter potholes, especially on unsealed dirt roads. These roads may also become muddy in certain conditions, which may be tricky to navigate depending on the vehicle you choose.
  • Book your car hire in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

The staff agent (Maurice) is super awesome. We also rented a car last year and this is the second time we’ve worked with him. He goes the extra mile and provided excellent all-around service.

Cons:

There’s a big discrepancy between the online price we were quoted and what we actually paid. Taxes and insurance — since they are mandatory— should be reflected in the online price quote at the onset of the rental process.

Pros:

Good customer support.

Cons:

Kayak should make clear that insurance is not included and needs to be added to the price shown in the booking. In addition, insurance with Allianz is not fully accepted by Alamo.
