How to get around Costa Rica 

The best way to get around Costa Rica is by renting a 4x4 vehicle. We recommend a 4x4 car because many of the roads are gravel or dirt roads and may be difficult to traverse if there is rain. We also recommend purchasing full insurance coverage when renting. Here are some of the anticipated routes we cover: 
  • San Jose to La Fortuna
  • La Fortuna to Monteverde 
  • Monteverde to San Jose

Will this save me any money?

Absolutely! We realize that maybe your perfect Costa Rican vacation is 5 days or 10 days. The great thing about our itinerary is you can modify it to meet your needs. Perhaps you want to focus solely on La Fortuna and forgo visiting Monteverde or maybe you want more less time in San Jose. By providing you with a 7 day itinerary, you have a lot of options to choose from when planning a trip to Costa Rica.

I want to spend more or less than a week in Costa Rica. Will I still find value in this itinerary?

This itinerary breaks down everything in one PDF guide. The itinerary adds even more value by planning every detail of a 1 week trip to Greece so all you have to do is truly book it, show up and enjoy the trip. We learn a lot on our trips about things that were worth it, things we wish we did, and the optimal route to take if we could do it over. You benefit from those learnings with this itinerary! Our podcast episode of Costa Rica, tells you what we did, but not to the level of detail you’ll find within our itinerary.
