One of the most important decisions you will make while planning your vaction is how you will travel from one destination to another. Nearly half of all foreign tourists to Costa Rica rent a car. Most major roads have improved noticeably in the last couple of years and GPS makes it much easier to find your way around. Flights are a quick way to get around, particularly if you don't need a car at your destination. Private transfers are popular as you can enjoy the scenery while leaving the driving to someone else.
