Driving at night in Sarapiqui? Please weigh in!

Many on this forum have recommended not driving at night in CR. What do you think about driving a rental car around Sarapiqui and La Virgen area at night, i.e. between Selva Verde and Tirimbina and La Selva for night programs? Better just to sleep at the lodge with the night programs and stay off the road at night? Since we have a rental car, we don't want to pay extra for taxis or transfers.

Also, when we leave the area and head for Arenal, which will be the last place we will pass--La Selva or Tirimbina?

Thank you.

It's not a problem to drive around your local area after dark. What we don't recommend is driving long distances on the main highways after dark. Once you arrive and spend a little time here, you will understand.

As for "the last place we will pass" - where would you be starting from in the Sarapiqui area?
