4x4 car rental in Costa Rica? We offer you great options!

First of all, we offer you a unique sustainable car rental option in Costa Rica! Why sustainable? Because it’s time! The country is well-known as the ultimate eco-destination. Almost 30% of the country is a protected area and almost 100% of the electricity is generated in a sustainable way. The country has distinguished itself for years with its ambitious, sustainable goals.

However, until recently it was not possible to explore Costa in a more sustainable transportation. In our opinion, that really had to change! With the Green Circle Experience we took matters into our own hands and made it possible to drive around Costa Rica with a more sustainable rental car. This makes us the first tour operator in the country to do so. Read on for more info!

Boer Family

We rented a Hyundai Tucson 4WD for the 4 of us. The car was delivered on time and everything went smoothly. Somewhere on the way we had some troubles with our tyre, which was quickly fixed when we visited one of the offices. Great service!


Jeff Wezel

Thanks to the durable plug-in Outlander 4×4 rental car I have been able to see a lot of Costa Rica! Because I traveled alone and on a student budget, I decided to stay in hostels and small hotels. However, charging my car was usually not a problem, and I could travel pretty far with only a few liters of petrol.

The insider tips that I got from Edventure Travel, made my trip unforgettable!

Edventure Travel organized our self-drive trip in Costa Rica including our 4×4 rental car. It was neat and everything was well organized. Also the extra request for a a local SIM card was well arranged.


Van de Luijtgaarden family

The Mitsubishi Outlander 4×4 rental car was big enough for our family to comfortably explore Costa Rica. Note: we are 2 adults and 3 teens aged 16, 14 and 11 and we carried quite some luggage!



Peter & Marlene

We explored Costa Rica with the first ever hybrid 4×4 rental car and were happy that in this way we were able to travel a bit ‘greener’.

We booked the Green Circle tour which was really something special!

What impressed us the most? We really don’t know, since every day had something truly special!


Neutkens-Scholten family

We explored Costa Rica with the Mitsubishi plug-in hybrid rental car. The rental company did not deliver the car on the agreed time. This was however quickly solved when we made a call to Edventure Travel. At our hotels, everyone was really interested in the hybrid car.
