    I would not make San Jose your hub. I would rent a car and move from area to area. Too much time will be spent travelling to / from the SJ area when you could be enjoying yourself relaxing or exploring. almost 6 years ago

    In my opinion, that might be tricky. Costa Rica has some bad highways and freeways so even though things appear close, they take forever to get to because of the backups or traffic. Remember that Costa Rica is fairly developed and San Juan is kind of a boring capital city. almost 6 years ago

    I would encourage choosing 2 to 3 areas of the country to visit and utilize a service, such as Interbus, for transportation to your destination. Traffic patterns, driving styles and the lack of road signs can make driving in the country a bit tense. By relying on professionals, you can really relax & enjoy your adventure. Unless you really enjoy large cities, I would only recommend San Jose as an arrival and departure point :) almost 6 years ago
