As others here, we had a 100% positive experience dealing with Thorsten, an owner of the business. We rented a Diahatsu Terios, a 2014, and everything worked as advertised, including the GPS rental (once we figured out how to convert it to English). Straight shooters all the way and that includes the pre-rental inspection for dents and scratches, and the... More

My husband and I rented a 4.x 4 from Wild Rider for the month of February 2015. Our experience was nothing but positive dealing with Thorsten and his staff. They offered vehicle delivery and pick up at the airport. They were waiting for us when we arrived and waiting for us when we returned the vehicle. Very quick and painless....what... More

From the initial email correspondence, to the pick up at the airport to the paperwork at the office, to the drop off at our hotel at the end we have an excellent experience with Wild Rider. Would recommend them highly for your car rental. They are no frills honest people who offer a good value. Dont expect newer cars, but... More

Because of the good reviews we decided to rent a 4x4 at Wild Rider to discover Costa Rica in 3 weeks. It was - in a good way - different from a regular car rental experience. Owner Thorsten takes all the time to explain everything, provides you with a map and advises on where and where not to go. He... More

Thorsten and his team at Wild Rider were incredible. I am so glad we rented our 4x4 from them when we went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. They were right on time for both drop off of the car, and pick up. They answered tons of questions and let us throughly inspect the car before we drove off. We... More

We rented a 4x4 with Wild Rider for three weeks and were very satisfied. The car was in excellent condition, the rate very good and they were open about all cost components from the start (none of the hidden surcharges I have been warned about when renting a car in Costa Rica). The service was great, we received not only... More

This was our 15th trip to Costa Rica but our first time renting from Wild Rider. We will definitely rent from Thorsten again. We drove a Bego and had absolutely no problems with it.

After renting cars with other 4 companies in the last 10 years, we tried Wild Rider for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We were very happy with the service and the quality of the 4x4 that we rented. The price was also the most competitive from the companies we requested offers. All in all, I can recommend... More

We rented a Suzuki Jimny 4x4 from Wild Rider for 10 days. I'm glad we did. I'd read about how some of the chain rental car agencies in Costa Rica can be "scammy" -- and how some require you to buy expensive insurance and have hidden fees. Wild Rider was a totally different experience. I received a rate quote from... More
