Has anyone done this drive recently? I hear the roads are in good condition.
We are flying into SJO on purpose as we wanted to drive and see some of Costa Rica before we get to our all-inclusive (not as thrilled about the drive back, but worth a little inconvenience to see some scenery).
We arrive at 11:30a and plan to be at the resort by 5:30p at the latest to avoid driving at night. We are seasoned travelers and not timid - just want to know if there is anything we should specifically plan for such as amazing sights along the way, tolls, or traffic jams to expect.
