Costa Rica travel plans

I need to get from San Jose to Puerto Limon in Costa Rica and was considering travelling along the Guapiles Highway because I've heard it is very scenic. Will I be able to rent a vehicle in San Jose to do this trip and what will the cost be? Do I need a 4x4 or will a regular car be alright? Any feedback would be great, thanks.

    Why don't you go on the internet and look at car rental companies in Costa Rica, like Hertz and Avis. For example:

    You can get all the costs from those websites.

    You do not need a 4WD to drive that road, a regular car is fine. Also, Puerto Limon is not a very nice place. You are much better off driving to Cahuita or Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
