Couldn’t recommend more highly seeing Costa Rica with this company. The vans are really well equipped with all the kitchen utensils, bedding fan etc you could need. We brought our own mosquito net to hang above the bed which was useful.
We took the van for a month and were able to see pretty much the whole country with the help of the app iOverlander which was invaluable in helping you to find good wild camping spots/ campgrounds. We felt completely safe everywhere we slept and were able to camp for free on the majority of nights, with a few nights in campgrounds here and there to make use of the amenities.
When we got the van stuck (compeltey our fault) Florian and his team were a huge help in sorting the situation out and ensuring the rest of our trip wasn’t affected.
At times the poor road conditions in Costa Rica would be better suited to a 4x4 but there is always a way around the problem roads even if the route takes a little longer, and the benefits of sleeping in the van in this beautiful country far outweigh this.
E.g the route 160 along the coast in Guanacaste looks legit on your phones maps but in reality is worth approaching with caution as some parts (around ostional/Nosara) can be pretty muddy and treacherous especially during rainy season. Maps.me is a great free app for offline sat navigation however it did take us down a few rogue dirt track roads which it thought were shortcuts, when there were actually paved highways close by which would have been a lot quicker and easier. Worth checking out all route options before setting off.
All in all an incredible trip! Special mention to our fave camping spots at the Arenal lake, puerto soley beach for sunset and thermales laureles campsite by the Arenal volcano. See pictures :)
As we like traveling individually and i had quote a few experiences which campervans in Australia, this guys with their compamy are the best! Easy and fast communication, the van was Delivered even a bit earlier, well then something broke and we had to get back yo their garage. But was fixex quickly and we took off.14days without any issues of the Car. We took the little USB internet which was great and used the recommended app for finding places to stay. I think in 2 weeks we paid 2 time a campground for showering. The rest we used recomended spots that used yo be the best! The shower motor on top of the Car didmt work but we managed. Fully equipped!all You need to enjoy costa Rica your way! We felt save all the time , locals approved of curiousity and loved the idea of the van, they even offered us their bathroom in need! Very friendly and open people se met.
We had a van for over just over three weeks and had an amazing time! We never would have been able to visit or experience the places we did without the freedom of having this van. Great opportunity to try out van life while exploring a beautiful country. Would highly recommend Costa Rider, great vans and even greater customer service!! Thanks again guys!
The only way to see Costa Rica !! We what 14 days to see the beautiful country. Thanks to the camper van we were able to see most of it!
Me and my girlfriend had the best month ever and i would say cheapest.
The transport isnt as accessable in the remote parts of costa rica so this helped alot and accomadation is expensive. We loved it, even when we got our van stuck (our own doing) they sent for help. Florian and Frank are great, always just a call away. Vans are in great condition.everything you need. Book it.
My family and I rented a costa rider van for 7 days. We cruised from Puerto Viejo to the mountains, to the pacific coast, to San Jose and back. The van was comfortable and made an excellent platform to tour the country. The service of Costa Rider is excellent. When we had engine trouble Floran had us picked up within two hours and gave us a new camper. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and cruising it by camper van is the way to go. Renting a camper van is a cost effective way to travel, not to mention it is really fun! Thanks Floran and Costa Rider!
It were great 4 weeks with this car.
We found really good places to camp in Costa Rica with this car.
The campervan is really fully equipted. The owners give even a mirror for shaving, witch a man needs after some days even in the joungle.
Very great ist the solar outside dush. Everywhere you want you have warm even hot water for a pleasant dush.
The engine runs in good condition we never had any problems.
