The Central American Charm of Costa Rica

The small Central American country of Costa Rica has both a Pacific and Caribbean coastline, borders the countries of Nicaragua and Panama and is a popular destination for travellers looking for an outdoor adventure and to explore Costa Rica’s many areas of natural beauty. A leader in the field of eco tourism, Costa Rica has become popular due to its biodiversity, as well as its outstanding beaches and national parks. This tropical country has two distinct seasons, divided into the summer ‘dry’ season from December until April and the winter ‘rainy’ season from May until November.

Hiring a minivan in Costa Rica enables you to visit the wonderful secluded beaches of the Central Pacific region, the mountains and volcanic areas of the Plains of the North, as well as to discover the vibrant cities of San Jose in Central Valley and Dominical in the South Pacific region. With our one-way car rental services, it is possible to drive to Costa Rica via the ‘Interamericana’ Pan-American highway that begins in Alaska in Northern America, passes through Costa Rica and continues on to Southern Panama, although to cross the border you must be able show you have a ticket leaving Costa Rica, by bus or aeroplane. If you arrive by plane, you can collect your minivan hire on arrival at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela, which is convenient for the capital city San Jose or Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), close to Liberia in the Guanacaste province and the Pacific Northwest coast, a popular tourist destination for beaches and surfing.

Costa RicaGetting around Costa Rica by car can be quite an adventure in itself, with poorly maintained roads making driving slow, but there have been many recent improvements and the new Highway of the Sun leads travellers from San Jose to the beaches of Orotina. Four-wheel-drive is good if you are planning to do a lot of travelling beyond the Central Valley, particularly along the Nicoya coast. Most tourists will head to the beaches of the Central Pacific region and the Nicoya Peninsula, where some of the country’s finest beaches can be found including Playa Santa Teresa and Montezuma. If rafting is your thing, Costa Rica’s many rivers provide plenty of opportunities to do so, and the town of Turrialba and the Arenal Volcano region are popular rafting destinations. Other popular activities including Sport Fishing on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Surfing at the beaches of Playa Negra and Playa Grande and Golf in the Guanacaste, San Jose and Mid Pacific regions. Mountain Biking is also a popular activity, particularly near the Turrialba, Irazu and Arenal Volcanoes, as are ‘Canopy Tours’ through the treetops of Costa Rica’s rainforest. No matter what brings you to Costa Rica, make sure you make the most of your vacation when you hire one of our Costa Rica minivans.

Minivan Hire

Minivans, multi-purpose vehicles (MPV’s), people-carriers or people-movers are the ideal rental choice in Costa Rica for people looking to transport large families, groups of 5, 7 or more. An MPV will give you and your passengers more space and comfort, are usually designed with larger dimensions and make smart use of their interior space. Ideal for long journeys, day trips or transporting business executives, the seats of a minivan are generally located higher than in smaller cars, providing a more upright seating position and more leg and head room. Flexibility and versatility is the key to a good minivan, utilising cleverly designed folding seats that can be stowed or removed to create additional luggage space and allowing drivers to choose between 5 and 7 seats. The extra two seats are often more suitable for children and short journeys, though some larger models will feature three rows of seats that are genuinely comfortable for adults. Read on to find out which minivan is most suited to your driving needs.

Rent a Compact MPV

Hiring a smaller compact minivan is the most economical option, and when it comes to minivans, sometimes less is more. Being cheaper to rent than a large Minivan, and benefitting from lower fuel costs, a compact MPV is a sensible choice if you are watching your budget. The Chevrolet Zafira 5+2 seater rental is a smart choice for a small 7-person vehicle, as is the Citroen Picasso 5+2 seater. Choose the Peugeot Partner 5 or 7 seater for a reliable and economic minivan hire, or select the Renault Modus for a solid little mini MPV. Save money on your minivan by renting a diesel MPV, offering better fuel consumption and delivering more miles per gallon than a standard petrol engine. Find out what savings you can make on your gasoline costs when you drive your Ford Galaxy tdi diesel, the Volkswagen Touran automatic TDI or the Citroen C8 Tdi rental in Costa Rica.

7 seater Minivan and Minibus Rentals in Costa Rica

For seven or more adult passengers, a full size MPV or Minivan is the vehicle for you. The 7 seater Dodge Grand Caravan is a smart minivan whose clever ‘stow ‘n go’ seating allows you to interchange between people carrier and cargo van, whilst the Kia Sedona is a powerful and comfortable minivan for 7 persons that is fitted with an impressive V6 engine and 6 speed automatic transmission. The Ford Galaxy 7 seater MPV offers space, comfort and first-rate driving, whilst the roomy Volkswagen Sharan is ideal for any family vacation or road trip. If you want to know how much it costs to hire an 8 seater, then check out our range of 8 or 9 seater people carriers, such as the 8 seater Chevrolet Spin, the 9 person Fiat Scudo and the 12 seat Hyundai H1 minibus.

Luxury Minivan Hire

With a larger budget, you might be looking for a larger minivan that offers luxury, style, passenger comfort, versatility and excellent driving dynamics. The Citroen Berlingo benefits from a vast interior space, practical sliding rear doors and provides surprisingly enjoyable driving experience, whilst the refined Mercedes Viano MPV is always a popular premium people carrier. For luxury, power and a good fuel economy, the 7 seater Volkswagen Touran TDI may be the right MPV for you, or perhaps you want to hire a smart 9 seater van such as the automatic Mercedes Vito. Ensure that you and your passengers enjoy a truly comfortable ride with our luxury MPV and minivan rentals.

Automatic or Manual Minivan Rental in Costa Rica

Choosing between automatic or manual transmission is a personal choice; some drivers prefer the extra control that manual shift gives you, whilst others prefer the ease of automatic gears, especially for city driving. Some will opt for a manual transmission as it is thought to be more fuel-efficient than an automatic, though in fact nowadays the differences are often negligible. In the US and much of Europe, automatic cars are often standard, and to drive a manual you will have to specifically request a stick shift car, whilst manual transmission remains the norm in the UK. For a reliable automatic minivan, the 7 seat Kia Sedona is a good choice, as is the Chrysler Grand Voyager automatic and the Automatic Toyota Previa. Try the Renault Grand Espcace with Sat Nav if you want a well-equipped manual MPV, or the manual 8 seater Toyota Quantum for a comfortable and reliable passenger van.
