Called Chepe by local residents, bustling San Jose provides visitors with many options for travelling with a car rental. Your car hire will transport you to the calmer and quieter western side of the city to spend an afternoon in the lovely Sabana Metropolitan Park, usually filled with outdoor enthusiasts and families enjoying picnics on the weekends. The park also houses the National Gymnasium, a venue for concerts and sporting events, and the La Salle Natural Science Museum on its southwest quadrant. In addition to the exhibits in zoology and archaeology, the museum features Costa Rica's sole palaeontology exhibit. Leaving the urban commotion, your road trip can take you to the nearby hills of Bello Horizonte in nearby Escazú, where you will delight in the unique and finely crafted woodworks of Biesanz Studios. For a nature adventure, the Zoo Avenue Animal Park in neighbouring Alajuela provides tourists with 14 hectares containing many species of local and exotic fauna. Breathtaking local beaches and national parks for eco-tourism provide other destinations with your rented car. Let Sixt permit you to discover the charm of the colonial and historical capital of Costa Rica.
