Car rental

I am interested in renting a car for a week I'll spend on a honeymoon in Aug. Do I need an SUV to get between Liberia and Arenal/ La Fortuna area, or can an economy car handle the roads?

thanks for your help!

Get the SUV, especially since it's well into the rainy season and you're bound to encounter some pretty chooped up roads... An alternative is to hire a private driver or take a tourist shuttle (interbus etc) and leave the driving to someone else.

the ubiquitous terrios is a good bet.easy on the gas, but good clearance and 4wd if you need it. not overpowered for sure. our agency was tricolor....very efficient and cheap........have a toll free line. not sure if they have an office in liberia. we used and abused it for 2 weeks in june for $540+-.

The great mayority of costaricans do not have a 4x4...and we travel around our country a lot!!

You can do your tour without a 4x4...but if you can get a Terios 4x4 ...get one...is cheap...good milage..4x4...and good road clearance..

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in paradise!!
