Hello! We are working on a 7 night trip to Costa Rica flying in and out of LIR in June. Our rough plan is to spend the first two nights in Monteverde and then drive route 18 to route 21 down to Mal Pais (and then back that way up to Samara or Tamarindo to finish out the trip).
We have gone from Tamarindo to Montezuma via route 21 before and while bumpy it was a fine drive, but this time it will be rainy season and our plan takes us across the La Amistad Bridge. One hotel in Mal Pais said not to plan to cross any big rivers. Is this route a bad idea? Can anyone shed some light? We aren't interested in taking the ferry. Thanks!
