This is some advice you can follow to rent a car in Costa Rica in a safer and easier way:

Analyze different options. In the market there is a great variety of agencies for renting a car, but pay attention to those car rentals that offer you an added value, for example: GPS, cell phone, free mileage, cash payment, free maps, model year cars and others. We remind you that you can have all these offers by consulting us at info@trebolrentacar.com
Ask about the final price. Many car rentals will offer you a price that initially may seem very attractive, but as soon as the negotiation progresses, the client will realize that the offered price doesn’t include items like travel insurances or mileage and, in consequence, the final price can increase dramatically.
Check the fine print. Before you sign the contract, read it carefully from beginning to end to know every single condition and benefit that you will receive during the service.
Car revision. Before you leave the car rental agency, pay attention to the vehicle details to guarantee it fulfils all the conditions and characteristics that the sales agent offered you. It is very important to check that the car has the basic equipment to cover emergencies or unforeseen events.

Finally, we recommend you to rent your car online, before you arrive to our country, especially if your visit is programmed for the high season. This will guarantee better prices and the possibility of choosing the car you want, because if you left this transaction to the last minute, you only can chose between the cars that will be available at that moment in the agency.

The waves here are not as consistent as its other Nosara neighbors, but when the surf is good it can be quite crowded.

Make sure to keep an eye out for the rocks and its natural pools. Protected by a coral reef, swimming is a very popular option here.
