Your Customized Transportation

"Judah recommended having a driver pick us up from the airport in San Jose and I'm really glad we did. The drive is two and a half hours and that was one less thing to worry about. We picked up a rental car in La Fortuna and on the drive you have amazing views of Arenal"

-The Jeff & Mindy Family (Illinois)

"We opted for Judah's driver, Mario, to pick us up at the San Jose airport and take us to an excellent rental car agency in Fortuna where we picked up a 4x4 SUV along with GPS. After a quick stop at the grocery store, we drove to the property and had no problem finding it using the directions which had been sent to us"

-The Marty & Beth Family (North Carolina)

Car Rental


  • 'Super Mario' picks you up at the airport (or at your hotel) and drives you directly to our preferred car rental agency in Fortuna¬†

  • If you are arriving after 5pm office hours, Mario will drive you to the supermarket to pickup all of your groceries and then on to Villa Hermosa where your car will arrive first thing the following morning

  • Instead of renting a car at the airport and slogging through an already long day of travel, you will find Mario waiting outside the airport: he greets you in English, loads your bags, drives safely, and provides tour guide services along the way (providing information about banana, pineapple & coffee plantations, exotic birds, the Costa Rican economy & culture etc.)

  • Along the scenic route, Mario knows the best places to stop for coffee & snacks
