No matter which part of Costa Rica you’re visiting, you’ll find Zest Car Rental can be of service. The destinations we cover include:

San José – Named after Joseph of Nazareth, San José is the capital of Costa Rica and is a charming city covered in brightly coloured murals. There are friendly cafés and restaurants serving up wonderful local cuisine and a vibrant art scene to immerse yourself in.

While exploring beyond La Fortuna itself, don’t forget to also take in the allure of the Sarapiqui jungles.
