Move around in reliable adapted transportation
Public transportation in Costa Rica is an affordable and accessible option for locals but may not be very practical for tourists. It makes many stops, and the journeys can seem endless.
A good alternative is Adobe Rent a Car, the largest car rental company in the country. They have vehicles with wheelchair access, such as the Rentar Minivan AT, which can be excellent for getting around with your travel companions.
Keep in mind that you will need a credit card to rent the car. Just like with accommodation, it is advisable to book it well in advance and with a reputable company. Make sure to carefully read the insurance conditions included in the rental and/or purchase additional options if necessary.
Best time of the year to travel to Costa Rica
It is worth visiting Costa Rica at any time of the year. The dry season is usually recommended since you won’t have to worry about rain. This period covers December to April.
However, the rainy season has its charm. From May to November, nature dresses in deep and lush greenery. Additionally, prices are usually cheaper. The climate also varies in the Pacific and Caribbean regions, so check before you travel.
