Car Hire from San Jose airport

We are planning 3 weeks in Costa Rica touring the country.

Please can anyone advise whether we need a 4*4 vehicle?

Also, who is the most reasonable to rent from the airport with drop-off back at the airport.

Any help gratefully received.

Really depends where you will be going...overall 4x4s are much sturdier and safer and its always good to have a little extra traction. 3 weeks hire will be costly, its also possible you might not need a vehicle for your entire trip - you could also use shuttle transfers. I'm sure if you provide more information regarding your itinerary you'll get some good answers. Seems best to avoid ECONOMY from most posts (I agree)...........

There are threads not far below today that are giving very detailed answers to your question. Yet as Simon has pointed out your itinerary is important to judge about 4x4 or not.
