With nearly forty years in the Costa Rican car rental industry, Poas Rent A Car has grown from three humble cars at the Hotel Ambassador to its current, up-to-date and well-maintained 200 vehicle fleet, which now services two international airports.

We thrive because of our daily commitment to our customers by providing local expertise, superior customer attention, and transparent fees to make for the best possible rental experience.

Our San Jose office is just 7 minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), close to major highways for easy access to popular vacation destinations, and a short 30 minutes from either Poas Volcano or downtown San Jose.

Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) is serviced by our fine staff in Liberia, located a mere 10 minutes away on Highway 21, and on the way to Papagayo, Coco Beach, Hermosa Beach, the Four Season Hotel and other favored Guanacaste locations.

We invite you to discover Costa Rica with Poas!




Very good

" Very good. I had no problems that I needed help with but pick up at airport was good, transaction at office was good and returning vehicle was good. Will use next time I am in CR and possibly for a long term rental."

Organized and professional

"The service is well organized and professional. The vehicles are in good condition. The shuttle to the airport is a plus. I was provided with clear informations regarding my rental and useful advise regarding driving in Costa Rica. I had to return the vehicle a day earlier and and was not expecting a refund even si I was given one. The cost of my 14 days was a third less that the mainstream operators. I definitely recommend the service and will use it again."

Guys in the office were very professional and worked quickly to get us in our car.

"Everything worked in the car and it got us to where we were going and back with no issues. Have rented from Poas on several occasions and plan to continue to rent from them."

Everything from the initial contact with Poas for our car rental to the pick up service has been amazing.

"We will return the car tomorrow the way we received it and don't anticipate any complications as our previous rentals have all been smooth and easy returns. We have had excellent customer service and love all the wonderful people that work at Poas! Thank you - we will definitely return and recommend you to friends and family! Pura Vida."
