Car Rental

Hi, We are a group of 8 flying in to San Jose then renting a home between Jaco and Quepos for 5 days and travelling on to MA for 3 nights. It has been suggested that we rent a car from Zuma Car Rentals in Jaco, have them pick us up at the airport, get driven to Jaco and pick our cars up. Does anyone have experience with them? Would you recommend another car rental company? Any suggestions for insurance coverage? It's all quite confusing. Thank you!

Yes it is confusing and costly, I have used, Vamos 4x4. They are the cheapest and very reliable. It is easy to get scammed by these companies so research is key. They have an online chat so you can ask any questions you have while booking your rental. They are located 5 min from the airport and will pick you up and drop you off. You will pay around 350.00 all in for a week of a 4x4 rental. That includes insurance, which is mandatory in CR.

Here is their site,

I don't remember ever reading anything about Zuma. That doesn't mean that they aren't good, but it is way safer to go with a company that has received plenty of good reviews rather than an unheard of option for obvious reasons.

No, no, no and NO. Please, Jessica, stop touting your company. It is obvious from your other posts that you know NOTHING about Costa Rica.

Yes I have been using Zuma for several years and so have several home owners in the area. zuma's service is unique, having your rental with their driver for pick up and drop off at the airport. The price they list is the price we paid.

I believe these people have been in business for more than 20 years. I have been using them for several years as well as many other home owners, pleased with their unique service of delivering the car to the airport and including their driver makes a stressless arrival to Jaco and return to the airport. One of very few companies to actually charge you what is quoted.

Just got back from Jaco.

We used Zuma for four vehicles. Two toyota Ravs , one mini-bus and a Toyota prado.

Excellent service, great price and location. We were allowed to park there if we went out in Jaco. Will recommend to anyone. Helpful service.
