Hi all- we are staying 1st night in Alajuela, and I was thinking a side trip to Poas might be nice early the next morning to break up all the travel to la Fortuna. I realize it is not on the way to la fortuna, but how much extra time am I adding? From Alajuela to Poas is about an hour, but how far from Poas to La Fortuna? How long of a trip is this compared to just going sraight for Fortuna from Alajuela?
Also, is Sarchi worth a stop, or can you buy that stuff anywhere?
Thanks! I know someone had posted a link somewhere to a drive times map, but I can't find it anywhere!
