We needed an SUV to navigate to Monteverde in Costa Rica. There were 12 people and we got the Toyota Prado x 2. Excellent car. Only complaint is when the third row is up, there is no trunk space for luggage and that was not made clear on website. Also, Alamo Belen the drop site was not easily found on Google maps.

Every person who helped us was extremely friendly. Our car had some dings, but that did not bother us. It ran well. We opted for the cellphone with unlimited wifi and it was a great decision.
