Drove 1200km throughout Costa Rica, a lot of atrocious roads but just take it easy and you will not have a problem.

A shuttle was ready and waiting to pick up us up from the airport. Once we arrived at the office, we were in and out within half an hour- the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. When returning the car we were in a hurry to make our outgoing flight, and they were very helpful expediting the closure process.
