Driving in Costa Rica is a great way to see and have a true adventure. Roads can be a mix of paved main 2 lane highways with some smaller dirt roads. Its not for everyone and any package at Costa Rica Escapes can be Self Drive, Shuttle Service or Private Transfers. So no need to stress if you don’t want to drive yourself.
So back to Driving in Costa Rica, typically if your going from main town to main town most will be paved. Pot holes are common in Costa Rica due to the strong rain. If your going to drive yourself be aware that there is a wet season. And it will rain most of the time of that season! So we would recommend shuttle service or private transfers for the inexperienced during the rainy season. Our self drive packages come with a cell phone so you can reach us for any concern. Cost Rica Escapes can even route your GPS upon request with your destinations!
