Why is hiring a driver the best way to go around Costa Rica?

Why would you want to hire a driver during your stay in Costa Rica?

  Some customers have told me they were recommended not to drive in Costa Rica. Some have read on different websites and blogs about the conditions they might face. Things like bad infrastructure or wild drivers among other situations.
Up to some extent, it could be true. It is not as wild as you might imagine though. If you drive defensively and you expect everything from everybody; You will be fine.

Now. When you think about all of the troubles you could avoid. The hassle that represents renting a vehicle and the liability and risk that driving in a place you are not familiar with could bring. The very narrow, winding and not well taken care of roads, the lack of signs and information. That's when the idea starts making sense. Moreover, if you really want to enjoy the trip, to take photos everywhere and to talk with your friends in the car, without having to pay attention to every possible thing going on in front of you.

You could think of taking one of those tours that offer several predetermined stops with not too much chance or flexibility for you to choose something out of the schedule. But doing this could easily turn in a bad day if you discover you are not very comfortable with the group of people with whom you'll be forced to stay for the rest of the trip. And we all know how annoying that could be.

In the other hand; Your own personal driver who is knowledgeable and friendly, will give his best to make sure to have an unbelieveble experience. You may ask for a stop as many times as you need and for whatever the reason, your request will be well received.
