How is driving in Costa Rica?
As mentioned in previous answers, Costa Rica is a small country but reaching different destinations can take a long time depending on the traffic. Costa Rica is very hilly and you have to keep that in mind. Climate and weather conditions are important to factor in to travel as well-remember the various microclimates this country has.
Whether you are renting a car or hiring a driver, the approximate time between majority of places is about 3 to 4 hours. Depending on time and flexibility of the family, 2 to 3 nights in the destinations is recommended to fully experience the full vacation. This way, families will have more time to know and appreciate the places and do a variety of activities with their kids.
