Excellent! Car was great and the added roof racks a big plus for the surf board! Plus the experience with Carlos is much more convenient and reasonable that using one of the large car rental companies. - Highly recommend.

Excellent trip! I used to live in Costa Rica and had heard horror stories from travelers about getting rental cars from the large agencies, so I decided to use Turo for the first tome. What a great choice! Carlos was extremely responsive and helpful every step of the way. The car worked great and the entire process was very smooth. I highly recommend renting from Carlos and will do so again if/when I return to Costa!

I LOVED my first Turo experience! Some friends met up with me who expressed how frustrated they were that there were so many hidden fees with the traditional car rental. I loved how I knew exactly what I was paying and no surprised. Plus picking the car up/dropping it off were so quick and convenient with Leo. Leo was a great host. He was quick to respond to any concerns that I had and when I gave him 30 min notice for when I would drop the car off, he was able to accommodate that. Plus, this car came with the wifi Hotspot which was a life saver-- I was able to work remotely off of the hot spot. Sometimes the hot spot was better than house wifi! Next time I come to Costa Rica, I will definitely rent from Leo again.

Leonardo was great! His communication was spot on for a guy who is working on his English ūüĎćūüŹľ His vehicles are great for getting around San Jos√©, and with his fleet - you can even potentially go off-road and see the jungle! The vehicle I rented was great on gas, similar the ones we have in the States, and easy to drive. I took a trip to the jungle, but this was not the vehicle to do that in. Between the deep road pot holes/wash outs, and the endless supply of mud and road boulders, this vehicle was too low to the ground and ended up getting scraped quite a bit. If you want to get out of the city and see the rainforests, you will NEED to rent on of his other 4x4 vehicles. **Words to Remember: -If you rent through Leonardo, he applies a $500 security deposit to cover his cost(s) for damages on his vehicle(s) while you rent them. Turo‚Äôs insurance (that you pay additional for) does not cover damage costs to the Owner for international rentals - just you. -If you don‚Äôt clean your car out (detail-wise), than you will be charged a vehicle cleaning. This usually is grouped for interior and exterior cleaning, and usually cost -Remember to fuel up or you will be charged back the difference, but + Turo‚Äôs processing & convenience charges. Great host, lovely country, and a beautiful experience. Thanks again! PURA VIDA! ūü•į

This Car Was Perfect For Us! Drove very well and was small enough to navigate through Costa Rica's narrow roads and handled all twists and turns well. Carlos and his helper were so helpful and responsive. The only feedback I could give is it may be time to replace the windshield wipers. But other than that, I lived everything about this experience with Carlos' Toyota Yaris.

The whole experience was seamless. I would highly recommend Leonardo’s cars. I paid for 21 days what some might pay Budget, AVIS or one of the other big name rental companies for a week’s rental. I spoke to a gentleman the spent $600 on insurance only for a weeks rental. Drive with convenience and the WiFi is a added bonus. Try it, You’ll like it!

Leonardo was very professional and attentive, he helped me with everything I needed from the beginning to the end of our trip in Costa Rica, without words to describe his professionalism, all the time in direct contact with us.to everyone who wants to go to Costa Rica and need rent a car safely and with quality I recommend it 100%.

Using Leo’s car for the week was wonderful, and Leo’s thoughtfulness & the things he included made our entire trip better. The car worked perfectly and for no extra cost, he included use of a hotspot that helped us consistently get directions as we traveled throughout the beautiful, hilly country of Costa Rica where we often otherwise would have had no connection. Leo shared pointers with us when we met him in the airport to get the car that helped us know about things that might be different when driving in Costa Rica, and his suggestions were very helpful. Leo including cleaning the car after at no additional cost which saved us time, stress, and money. When we returned the car back to Leo well taken care of, he returned our deposit back to us. We recommend using Leo’s car without hesitation.

Leonardo exceeded all expectations as far as customer service! He went above and beyond when i encountered an issue with my rental. The Yaris was not available so we switched to a small suv. I felt a mechanical issue with the car (yes things happen...) when almost to an excursion we had booked. It was more than an hour and a half away. While on the excursion, Leonardo drove all the way there and brought us a replacement vehicle, transferred our personal belongings and left a key all while we were on our excursion. I would highly recommend doing any type of business with him as i can see that he has alot of integrity and will make sure that your rental is good to go. Great job and thank you for allowing us to enjoy our stay and get around safely!

Leonardo's services are more than great! Excellent first-class experience! If there were 6 stars he deserves it :) Extraordinary all inclusive service above and beyond a rent-a-car - from the full insurance coverage provided by his own insurer, unlimited mileage, mobile internet in the car, great communication and support all the way to exceptional assistance during our last day adventure, which I must share. We had an incident with the car in a remote location and thanks to the internet in the car I was able to contact Leonardo, who seamlessly and fast arranged a towing truck for the car and a taxi to come and find us and take us to our hotel which was about 100 km away. Without doubt, whenever I need a car in Costa Rica, Leonardo is first on my list!

On top of that, Leo was the greatest host you can find. Very helpful, easily reachable, quick to respond, extremely accommodating.

Carlos was great communicating with us throughout the rental car process. We were late due to customs being difficult and were not able to contact him. They waited for almost 2 hours for us and were very helpful in sending us on our way. The car was perfect for what we needed it for- safe, dependable and comfortable. I would highly recommend Carlos's services to anyone, he also has air bnb's as well. Do not get scammed by the large rental agency's, go through Turo.

He met us at the airport, made sure that we were comfortable and knew where we were going, and presented us with a great vehicle that highly surpassed our expectations. The vehicle ran great and was in great condition. Very very clean. You can tell that he not only cares deeply about his vehicles being presentable and ready for the renters, but he also cares about the travel and experiences of the renters themselves. 100% would recommend!!!

I had some reservations about using Turo outside of the U.S., and was wary about the cash deposit, but I'm so glad I decided to go with it! Leonardo was so warm, helpful, and responsive. He refunded my deposit right away upon returning the car, and even filled up the tank and sent me the receipt on WhatsApp for reimbursement after picking up the car at the airport (totally my fault for forgetting to do it before I got to the airport!). The car got great gas mileage and saved us so much money- it was about a third of the cost of renting from a big company. I highly recommend renting from Leonardo!
