Organize your trip however you want, with a car in Costa Rica

Renting a car is the only way to get around Costa Rica, and the most popular one, too.
If you don't rent a car, your only solution will be to book expensive trips with travel agencies that impose schedules and timetables. Quite unfortunate when you've come from so far away and find yourself traveling through such a beautiful country.

Your free time is precious, and it's important for us to make this trip special for you.
Car rentals offer the driver and the passengers the freedom to go wherever they want, to check out new spots, to explore the country away from the popular touristic roads. Just imagine being totally free, driving wherever your inspiration guides you... the ultimate travel experience.

Easier than public transportation

Public transportation in Costa Rica consists of buses and a few trains. Although the country's bus network is on average fairly well-developed, car rentals are the only way to not be limited by the bus companies' timetables and destinations on offer, which aren't always practical for your day. Furthermore, some towns and more remote locations are not connected and roads are sometimes in poor condition. Also, a number of isolated places (hotels, lodges...) are only accessible by special cars like 4x4 and SUV on dirt roads.
Renting a car in Costa Rica is therefore the most viable and popular option for getting around, giving you the insurance to travel freely and at your own pace, every day.

Car rental in Costa Rica most cost-efficient way to get around

Renting a car in Costa Rica during your stay will be on average much less expensive than booking excursions with travel companies for every activity. Renting a car in Costa Rica allows you to reduce the cost by dividing the rental price by the number of passengers in the vehicle, whereas with excursions, each person has to pay for the ticket prices, which can quickly become quite expensive. Car rentals in Costa Rica not only allow you to be free to go anywhere in the country, but also get the best prices during your trip. Keep your credit card and usd in your pockets, we know you will find better ways to use them on other occasions.

As an additional advantage, driving around the country is a great, popular way to discover hidden locations. 


Whether you're travelling alone, as a couple, with family or friends; for business or pleasure, Jumbo Car is your partner company for mobility in the city and around the country.
More than renting a car at the best price, you want to rent from a company that gives you the insurance to be there when you need them.

That's why, even though the vehicles of our company are all new or very recent, we've set up a national network to intervene and assist our cars and customers in less than 2 hours throughout the country, thanks to recognized professionals in Costa Rica, as part of our coverage and protection services.

To insure a secure booking, we will need your driver license and your credit card number, and our international teams will keep the vehicle of your choosing (suv, sedan, convertible...) ready for you, to make sure you have the best trip.

We are also available at all times:

  • Phone +506 225 JUMBO or +506 22 55 86 26
  • Email to
  • WhatsApp at +506 888 586 26 or +506 888JUMBO
  • On Social Networks: Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, GoogleMyBusiness

Because the safety of drivers and their passengers is our priority, every vehicle is fully disinfected between customers and our agents are equipped with specialized anti-Covid19 protection equipment. By choosing Jumbo Car, you choose to rent from a company that gives you the insurance to take no risks! 

Finally, a partner is someone you can trust. Jumbo Car is part of the French GBH Group, which has been recognized in France and abroad for over 60 years. With over 50 years' experience in car rental on several continents (West Indies, Africa, Oceania, Central America), we are rare international specialists among rental companies and know our business inside out. Great prices, a seamless booking experience, an important number of vehicles (suv, sedan, 4x4...), great coverage with our driver insurance and protection package, we've thought about everything to make sure your trip is a special time for you. Trust the professionalism of a popular international company.
