Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at San José Airport! Then drive downtown, park your car, and take a self-guided walking tour of San José’s varied architecture—a mix of European and Latin American styles, which reflect Costa Rica’s rich history. Visits to the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, the Jade Museum, and the Children’s Museum are also a must.
With a rental car, it’s easy to hook up with a tour at the nearby Poas and Irazú volcanoes, go on a rafting trip, or visit a coffee or butterfly farm. Back in San José choose a smaller restaurant outside the city center for some authentic Costa Rican cuisine.
San José is a great place to visit, but why not get a longer term car rental to keep exploring? You can see more of Costa Rica, swim in the Atlantic one day and the Pacific the next, and even visit neighboring Panama or Nicaragua. Picking up your rental car at San José Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your adventure today!
San Jose Airport is also known as Juan Santamaría International Airport and Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría.
