Arenal to Montezuma

First trip to CR coming up in mid-March. We are staying in the Arenal area first and then driving down for a few days in Montezuma. We rented a 4x4 and now need to know what the best route is to get there and how long it might take. Thanks!

I think the best route is to Puntarenas with ferry crossing to Paquera, it will take you 6 hours if your timing with the ferry is right on. You can also cross the Amistad Bridge into Nicoya Peninsula and drive down the coast, it will take about the same time.

Definitely the ferry from Puntarenas to Paquera is the best route.

Just check the ferry times near the date - they do occasionally change. 2661 2084 is the number to call for the schedule
