I'm going to CR in January for two weeks. There will be 6 of us, and we were planning on renting a large 12 person van from Vamos. They only have a manual transmission. My husband was going to be the main driver, but has just torn his rotator cuff , will require surgery and the immobilization of his right arm. Bye bye driver. I am not used to such a large vehicle. Throw in the seldom used manual transmission, rainy weather and hilly terrain and I'm a little chicken.
I'm trying to find something a little bit smaller and with an automatic transmission, while staying with the recommended car rental companies. I'm not doing very well. The Prado and the mini-vans tend to fit 7. Throw in at least 6 bags and a cooler, we're going to be cramped. My parents, who are going with us, are in their 80's. I want them to be comfortable. Any suggestions you guys? Know of any rental companies with a slightly larger vehicle with an automatic?
I did find a large 12 person van with an automatic through Thrifty, though they want to charge about $2000 for two weeks. Still, it's an option.....
I appreciate any suggestions and help. Thanks
