My husband & I are going to Costa Rica in just 2 short weeks. We plan on driving from La Cieba Tree Lodge, near Nuevo Arenal, to Santa Teresa. We are looking at www.yourtravelmap.com for driving directions, and it suggests driving around Nicoya Peninsula instead of driving to Puntarenas and taking the ferry to Paquera. Has anyone ever driven this route? Would it be better to drive from Nuevo Arenal to Puntarenas and taking the ferry over?
Thanks for your help!
