How long to drive from Montezuma to Liberia Airport?

Google maps is telling me about 3.5 hours, so I'm budgeting 4 to be safe. Will leaving at 7 or 8 get us to the airport by noon?

Roughly 5 hours more or less. Check travel times at www.yourtravelmap.com The unpaved roads around Montezuma could slow you down some. Googlemaps is completely unreliable for travel times in Costa Rica.

Google maps is fine for maps - but not so good for travel times. This is the best source for Costa Rica: www.yourtravelmap.com

As you can see, they are saying 5.22 hours. The route they use is to take the ferry to Puntarenas and then Rt 1 north to Liberia and then to the airport.

Another possibility is to drive from Montezuma to Playa Naranjo and take Rt 21 north from there, all the way to the airport. It will be a bit quicker - but part of the road is not so great so slow going on that part.

I would definitely give yourself an extra hour in case of problems.

If you have a flight out of Liberia, your safest bet would be to just spend the night somewhere near the airport the night before you flight. You can stay at either Playas del Coco or Playa Hermosa, both of which are 20-30 minutes from the airport so you can still have breakfast at the beach!
