    Default Costa Rica - Nomad America 4x4 rental

    Has anyone used this company before? Their website is awesome and it seems insane what you're getting for the money.

    My wife and I went to Costa Rica over New Years in 2014/15 and loved it so much we want to explore the whole country by vehicle and off road. After we completed our 10k mile overland/road trip this past winter, our thirst for adventure remains insatiable.

    This company seems like a great way to hop right into an overland adventure without spending the many thousands of dollars it would cost just to get ourselves and our Tacoma down to CR and then go on to more exploring. Thoughts? I think if we do this next year, I'll go full out and rent us a Defender. I've always wanted to play around in one.

    Thanks for sharing! We went to CR a few years ago also and loved it. I would also rent a D110 next time.

    Pura Vida!!!!

    I have spend my time on 4x4 car hire in South Africa trip with my two friends. I was a really great time for me in my last year. That was awesome and great time which I had enjoyed with him and I had spend here lots of time with travel experience.

    This seems like an awesome way to get around! My Fiance and I are currently planning our honey moon to Costa Rica and this would be a great alternative for a few days

    Hey Whiskey tacos!

    Just stumbled on this post while narcissistically searching ourselves Did you ever manage to make it down to Costa Rica again?
    Let me know if I can help out with anything at all.

    We now have apart from the Defenders Toyota Hilux, Toyota FJ Cruisers, Toyota Prado Land Cruisers (2-door), Toyota Fortuners, and Nissan Xterra for you to come try out all fully camping equipped + rooftop tent.

    Please let me know if this post style (company acknowledging its a company) is not allowed on this forum and i'll delete it right away.

    Pura Vida!

    Hey there! We haven't made it back down yet, but we're hoping for a trip next winter. 2016 was an expensive year for us, and it's really strange to have zero planned trips thus far in 2017.

    We are sitting at a hotel in LA right now. Flying out to Liberia, CR tomorrow AM and Nomad America is delivering the Defender 110 to us there. We have it for 5 days heading down the coast to Malpias and back to Tamarindo. I'll let you all know how it goes!

    Wow $10.00 a day for a fridge on top of the rental price. Can't go without but they kind of force you to rent if you really want to get out and away without going for ice everyday for that cheap $20.00 cooler they provide.

    Awesome! I hope you take the jungle roads from Malpais to Montezuma, I did that on an ATV and it was a blast. Can't wait to hear about your trip.
