Where can I rent SUV cars in Costa Rica?

With Adobe Rent a Car, you can rent a reliable SUV vehicle at any of our 15 locations throughout Costa Rica. 

Do you want your rental car compact SUV upon arrival? We have full-service offices at both the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (LIR) in Liberia and the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela. Our headquarters office is located in the Capital City, San José.

Top rental vehicle types in Costa Rica

Knowing what vehicle is right for your Costa Rica itinerary is important. Most visitors with previous CR driving experience choose a 4WD.  The added traction, power, and peace of mind that a 4X4 vehicle provides is priceless when road or weather conditions are rough.

At Adobe Rent a Car, we offer a fleet of impeccable SUV vehicles to meet your specific needs. Our full-size, Intermediate, and compact SUV rental car examples include the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Mitsubishi ASX, and Hyundai’s Creta, Tucson, and Santa Fe. And all of our cars are less than two years old.

Most of our SsangYong Korando vehicles come with manual transmission. If you prefer to drive an automatic, try the sleek and powerful Mitsubishi ASX 4WD, or similar.

Should I choose an intermediate, full-size car or compact SUV rental?

Choosing the right vehicle depends on your group’s size and the amount of time you’ll be driving. A full size or intermediate SUV is the best choice for four or more passengers, or if you need extra legroom and spacious seats to be comfortable.

Families or groups of travelers planning to be on the road for long stretches at a time usually choose a full-size or compact SUV car rental as well.

Choose the right rental car for your trip to Costa Rica

If your visit to Costa Rica only entails driving in the capital, Liberia, or on major highways, you may not need a 4WD. Speak with one of our bilingual customer service agents for tips and recommendations for your trip.

Rental car deals for compact SUVs

Adobe Rent a Car promises competitive vehicle rental rates year-round – with no hidden fees, guaranteed.

If you’re managing a tight budget and want to rent a 4WD for your trip to Costa Rica, there are several options to get the best deal. First off, try renting a compact or economy vehicle over a full-size or elite SUV.

Next, if you’re traveling solo or as a couple (two individuals), try the extremely popular manual transmission Suzuki Jimny. It packs power and durability in a small and affordable package.

And lastly, the best car rental prices for a compact SUV will be during Costa Rica’s low tourist season between May and November. Many hotels and vehicle rental agencies lower their costs during this period to attract customers. Speak with your Adobe agent for recommendations on the best vehicle to fit your itinerary and budget.
