I've been doing some research about driving in Costa Rica and it seems most people advise against it. However, most of the posts I have seen refer to people exploring in Costa Rica and not just traveling from point A to point B on the main roads.
So, my question is, is the road from San Jose airport to Tamarindo reasonably safe to drive myself? Keep in mind that one way I plan to drive in the day but on the other leg I need to go at night. Also, I hope to make this drive at the end of May so not sure if road conditions are any worse or better at this time of year.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
