Question by trancesend: Is it safe to do the self-driving option when touring Costa Rica?
Planning a trip to Costa Rica, is it better just to do a wholesale package tour, or do a self-drive instead to save a bit of money. Any advice, or sugesstions? thanks!
Answer by Hondu
I own a car in Honduras and have also rented cars in both Honduras and Guatemala. Many, many trips throughout both countries without a hitch. Costa Rica is more Americanized and the infrastructure is much more developed than either of those countries, so I would expect you would be just fine with a car. If you really want to save money take a look at the extensive bus systems that all the Central American countries have.
