Drake Bay to Uvita

We are planning on staying in Drake Bay and then driving to the Uvita/Dominical area. We've heard estimates between 1.5 - 4 hours for the trip (in a 4x4). Does anyone have a good idea of how long it would take? And if there are different routes or just one? We will be traveling at the end of February.

Thank you!

It really depends on the road condition. But it will be at least 4 hours. I would leave early, because there is a river that flows and sometimes in the afternoons it can overflow and block your way.

Your hotel will know the best time to go for sure!

Hope this helps,

At least 4 hours. You can probably get a few different routes by playing with this interactive map http://tiny.cc/LXrwt
