Should I Rent a Car in Monteverde

What’s the best way to get around Monteverde? Shuttles might seem convenient, but typically, they only go to major attractions, making it more difficult to get to smaller attractions or towns. Hiring a driver can get expensive, and public transportation forces you to adhere to someone else’s schedule on your vacation.

When you rent a car from Enterprise, you have the flexibility to customize your trip. Enjoy the fun things you want to do when it is convenient for your schedule – no one else’s. Ready to test your nerve on the Santa Elana Skywalk? Or admire the stunning grounds at the Monteverde Orchid Garden? With your Enterprise Rental Car, you can arrive early (or later) and visit these awe-inspiring attractions without crowded tour buses.

Whether you’re looking for customization or convenience, renting a car through Enterprise will help you make the most of your Monteverdevacation.
