Tips for car renting in Puerto Viejo
Car rental Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica
Costa Rica’s South Caribbean Coast is taking the vacation destination stage. And Puerto Viejo is its biggest star. However, don’t confuse the destination with Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí located further north. Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is the beachfront paradise getting everybody’s attention.
Once a sleepy fishing village, today Puerto Viejo and neighboring coastal towns Cahuita and Manzanillo draw international attention.
The postcard-perfect coastline features Caribbean beaches backed with lowland rainforests and the verdant Talamanca mountains. The diverse collection of natural environments creates a multitude of opportunities for the adventurous at heart.
Surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, and river rafting dominate the water sports options. While horseback riding, hiking, canopy tours, mountain biking, birding, and beach bumming make up the most popular eco adventures to be had on land.
Equally so, the Caribbean side of Costa Rica is culturally and historically diversified. While strolling the streets, you’ll likely hear a musical blend of accents and dialects from all over the world.
The most prominent language spoken in the region is an English patois known as Limonense Criollo. Testimony of the region’s mostly Afro-Caribbean inhabitants. Spanish follows, then a host of international languages and even native indigenous dialects. The South Caribbean is a veritable melting pot.
Renting a car in Costa Rica
Most travelers in the planning stage ask if it’s necessary to rent a car in Costa Rica. The next question is a 4×4 not necessary for certain areas. Or – is a 4WD the best and safest option driving in Costa Rica?
The answers are: Yes, renting a car is the best way to experience the country and its cultures. And Costa Rican driving conditions vary depending on where you are and what you plan to do.
Ask an Adobe agent what size and type of rental car best fit your travel itinerary. Our bilingual agents are always happy to lend a helping hand and give good advice. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll reply shortly with answers to all your questions.
Most of the country’s most popular destinations like La Fortuna, Manuel Antonio, and Puerto Viejo are reached via well paved and maintained roads. However, if you want to explore the road less traveled, you’ll likely need a 4WD or at least an SUV.

Getting to Puerto Viejo
Puerto Viejo is approximately five hours and 217 km from the capital San José. And only about 45 minutes or 42 km from the town of Sixaola on the Panama border.
About half of the drive from San Jose involves descending from the Central Valley to the Caribbean lowlands. This means taking (the sometimes-daunting) Route 32 down through the Braulio Carillo National Park.
The intense rainforest and steep mountains of the park are frequented by heavy rains and occasional landslides. If severe weather does occur, the highway may be closed temporarily for safety purposes or while road crews clear debris.
Some of you may not be used to driving on steep mountainous roads. Or where inclement weather is commonplace. If so, it’s best to rent a car at or near your final destination.
Car rental locations in or near Puerto Viejo include our Puerto Viejo office and our Adobe Limon office.
Our Limon office is located 0.5 kilometers West of the Auto Banco Nacional on Route 32. Just a couple of blocks from the cruise ship docks.
