Has anyone used Mapache car rental in CR?

Jump to last reply

We've rented from Tricolor our last two trips, but they tell me that they only have vehicles that fit up to 5 people and we need one that will fit 6 of us, so they're out. Initially we planned to rent a vehicle for the whole trip except Osa, but now I'm thinking of using a driver to get to Arenal and from Arenal to Peace Lodge and Peace Lodge to the airport to get to Osa. But, then to rent a car in Arenal for the few days we're there. We've always had our own vehicle there, and I just really love that flexibility. It just seems that for the 6 of us, plus luggage, renting a vehicle for the whole trip will be too costly. And, when my mom heard that my husband would be driving her through CR and the mountainsides, she sort of freaked out - she thinks he's not cautious enough! So, I don't need her as a backseat driver the whole trip -

So, I see Mapache rents in Arenal - does anyone have experience with them? They replied very quickly with a price quote. I may still do some price shopping, but I was looking for some feedback to start.

Thanks!
