Driver License in Costa Rica

The driver must be in general at least 21 years of age (in some rent-a-car 23 years) and requires a valid passport. Therefore you can drive a vehicle for 90 days in Costa Rica (for some people a period of 30 days, depends on the visa). You also need a valid license from your country of origin. For a Costa Rican driver's license you can only apply if you have residency permit in Costa Rica.
