Car hire near docks in Puerto Limon

We are hoping to hire a car on our day stop to get up the coast to explore around Cahuita. Does anyone know if this is possible and how far the pickup/drop off points are from the port? If not, is it best to prearrange a taxi or do you think we could find one at the port? Any idea of costs?

Sorry for so many questions all in one. Just booked last minute holiday!

Yes it is possible and many nice people will offer the service…try to deal with local people avoid some foreigners with good French and even English…but without legal papers to work in PARADISE…

Adobe has an office in downtown Limon easy walking distance from the pier. Alamo and National have offices in Limon for car rental but are not near the docks. You’ll need to contact them for a shuttle or taxi to their offices.

Personally I think it would be a lot less stressful to hire a private driver for the day. You can also check with Gecko Trail to see cost of private van.

Thanks for the advice. Would I need to find and arrange a driver in advance or will there be companies near the dock? Any suggestions?
