Daihatsu Bego

Some car rental agencies say it fits 5 people and others say it fits 4. Which is it? We have 2 adults and 3 kids, ages 11, 9, and 5. Can we go with a Bego or do we need a larger car.

This car rental thing is really stressing me out. Anyway, we plan to spend one night and two days in Arenal and one night and two days in Monteverde. The rest of our time will be in the beach towns of Guanacaste. Do we really need a 4x4? We will be traveling in August.

You really do not need a 4x4...Bego are certified by the DOT...for 5 passengers...for the kids age and two adults is a good ride...little tigh but good enough.

A Bego is soooo tiny! You will sardine into this car with your family leaving no room for your luggage!

Go for a larger vehicle with better suspension! A Rav 4 would be much more appropriate!
