Adobe’s most comfortable cars for long trips

Tips, Travel Costa Rica

Just about every square meter in Costa Rica is worth exploring. For those of you hoping to see and do as much as possible, there are two essential assets you must have to ensure your trip is worth remembering. The first, naturally, is time, and the second is a good vehicle for getting around. 

Yes, there are several options for navigating the country according to your itinerary. In-country flights, shared or private shuttle services, hiring a private driver, and using the public bus system are the top alternatives. All have their ups and downsides, and all (apart from public transportation) tend to be overly time consuming and expensive.  

And the issue of how to get around once you’ve reached your final destination remains.  

What it comes down to is: You can’t beat the convenience you get by renting a car in Costa Rica.

Great rental cars for a road trip

A great road trip starts with a great car. Comfort, luggage space, fuel efficiency, and durability are some of the most important criteria for a successful journey.  

But renting a car for a road trip can mean so much more. 

Having the freedom to follow your heart’s desires is priceless. With a Costa Rica rent a car, you can be the artist in your vacation’s masterpiece. 

Choose where you want to go and when. Decide how long you want to stay and what side trips are worthy of undertaking. Be your own tour guide and explore those off the beaten path waterfalls, hiking trails, and secluded beaches.  

Be warned that there are several car rental companies in Costa Rica to choose from. But they’re not all the same. TripAdvisor is full of comments from unsatisfied rental customers caught unawares by hidden fees, mandatory insurance scams, and other disappointments.

That’s why it’s so important to choose the right company. We at Adobe Rent a Car are seasoned professionals in the car rental industry. We’re proud to be a 100% Costa Rican-owned company that values our clients as well as our employees. 

We want you to feel like part of the Adobe family. That’s why we promise you’ll never have to worry about hidden fees or elevated prices.  

We offer competitive rates, and our fleet of vehicles is impeccably maintained. And rest assured, you won’t find a lemon among our cars. All of our Adobe vehicles are top of the line brands and less than two-years old. 

So, what is the right rental car for your upcoming vacation or business trip? 

We want to make it easy to choose the right vehicle for your itinerary. The following list of Adobe cars are highly recommended for road trippers. Choose the most comfortable rental car for you based on the following five criteria: 1) Comfort; 2) Durability; 3) Fuel efficiency; 4) Family and group friendly; 5) Best “Infotainment System.” 

 

  1. The most comfortable cars for long journeys

Costa Rica is a small country, but its narrow roads and unsophisticated road systems mean going from A to B can take longer than anticipated. Traveling in comfort can make a big difference and take your road trip from good to great. 

Most comfortable 4WD: Hyundai Tucson 4WD Automatic. This mid-size SUV is perfect for navigating the country’s mountainous and rugged terrain. The 4X4 traction and clearance combined with its four-cylinder engine make it one of the most comfortable rental car for a long trip.

  1.           Adobe’s most durable Costa Rica car rental

Suzuki Jimny 4×4 manual: Costa Rica is all about the great outdoors. And that means rough terrain, steep mountain passes, dirt roads, lots, and lots of fun. This vehicle knows no limits. Its small size packs a big punch when it comes to tackling Costa Rica’s most daunting road conditions.

  1.           Most comfortable rental car for traveling long distances as a family or group

Let’s face it; life can be challenging. The last things you need during your vacation are unhappy loved ones. Especially if you’ve got to spend a few hours on the road to reach that unique destination. Happy kids mean happy parents, after all. 

These two Adobe favorites will make your travel time pleasurable. A trip from San José to the famous Arenal Volcano, for example, will pass in the blink of an eye! 

Chevrolet Trailblazer 4×4 automatic: This full-size SUV powerhouse is gentle on the eyes and will keep your children and friends focused on the stunning scenery outdoors and not on the conditions indoors. The back and front seats provide good cushioning and thigh support, with plenty of power adjustments to accommodate all sizes. There’s also space for two more passengers by engaging the far rear seats when luggage isn’t a priority. 

 

  •  5+2 passengers
  •  3 luggages
  •  4 doors
  •  4×4
  •  Diesel

Hyundai H1 Minivan automatic: This stylish minivan is more than just a people carrier and is an Adobe favorite for groups looking for car rental comfort. It has all the space you could want in a van and seats eight easily with plenty of room for luggage or nine with six suitcases in tow. Drivers will feel secure knowing there are ABS, ESP, and two front airbags onboard if ever necessary.

  1.           Best infotainment system option for your buck

Hyundai Tucson 4×4 automatic: While this mid-size vehicle might not have the same top-of-of-the-line infotainment system as you can find in the USA, its combined assets make it an Adobe favorite option for road trips. 

With an advanced CarPlay and 7-inch infotainment display for both iPhone and Android, you’ll have access to your preferred social media and navigational apps like WhatsApp, Google Maps, Waze, and more. 

Connect your Spotify playlist for non-stop music, and you’ll have your own soundtrack to match Costa Rica’s stunning scenery. 

The car’s interior is equally spacious and comfortable, with plenty of controls to adjust the climate and seating to perfection. A powerful engine and 4×4 traction and lift make it a no brainer for navigating Costa Rica’s great outdoors.
