Pros:10/10 would reccomend the Alamo in Belen near the San Jose Airport. Customer service was amazing, staff was super friendly and helpful, and facilities and cars are clean and well-maintained. We upgraded for a small extra amount per day and were so thrilled with our vehicle (Toyota Fortuner). Upon returning our car to Alamo at the end of our trip, we had no wait at all before our car was checked out, receipt confirmed, and our friendly driver dropped us off at the airport. Will absolutely be return customers for our next trip.Cons:Everything was super!Reviewed 12 Feb. 2020

Be carefulPros:The car was nice. had no problems with it the four wheel drive saved my butt a few times. Returning the care was quick and easy, done in five minutes, and the shuttle took us to the airport no problems.Cons:Unfortunately when we got to the car rental place they refused to let us use our third party insurance and forced us to take theirs, which made the price go from $150 to $557 total also they required a 1,000 usd deposit for the time that they withdrew from my credit card for the time that we had the car. (I guess this is standard but it would have been nice if they let us know ahead of time.)Reviewed 14 Feb. 2017

HUGE hidden fees, SCAMPros:We rented an SUV for 11 days in Costa Rica. The online price for a 5 person/4 bag SUV was $196. We figured that we couldn't say no at that price and planned our trip based on having our own vehicle. When we arrived, they conveniently had misunderstood that we wanted a smaller SUV that could hold 4 people/1 bag and wanted us to pay an large upgrade fee to get the vehicle we had actually reserved. They also failed to mention that the insurance is $56/day and insurance is mandatory. There is also an additional unmentioned daily rate for each additional driver. All in all, the total would have been $900-$1000, about 5 times the price we had been quoted. They know they have you in a tough position and take advantage of that vulnerability. You either have to give into their scam or totally rehaul your vacation on the fly and miss things you were really looking forward to. Will never rent from ALAMO again.Reviewed 27 Jan. 2017

Pros:Represenatives were polite and understanding.Cons:We selected an alamo rental from Kayak to accommodate for 5 people and 4 bags with additional Allianz auto insurance that was provided as an add-on on the Kayak website. When we arrived in Costa Rica, we learned that despite a visual proof via receipt from the Kayak website, an 'Intermediate SUV' by Alamo in Costa Rica is defined as an SUV that accommodates 4 people and 2 suitcases. In addition, the Allianz auto insurance that we selected would not cover the SUV rental as Allianz does not cover SUV's in Costa Rica.Reviewed 3 Feb. 2017

Pros:There was nothing positive about this rental company. Do not book with them!Cons:First of all, we made our reservation for 9:00 pm and arrived at the rental counter at 10:00pm. We were told that they may not have a car for us because we were too late even though the policy states that reservations were guaranteed for 2 hours after your booking time. We were still sent to the rental place which was closed (even though it is a 24 hour service), instead were we sent to National car rental for some reason and waited for another hour to be told again that they ran out of cars. National car rental told us that their policy for guaranteed reservations was 45 minutes, however, we did not book with national and it was clear that the companies simply ran out of vehicles. We were told that we needed to make a new reservations or wait in the line for probably another 2 hours to see if any other types of cars were available. Very unprofessional and a terrible experience. Luckily, economy rent a car was across from our hotel and they had a car for us the next day. They turned out to be a decent rental company. Just expect to to pay $200-400 US more than the quoted price for insurance or get a $5000 US hold on your credit card. Once the rental process was over Costa Rica was great just beware of the process during high season.Reviewed 26 Feb. 2017
