Driving in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Costa Rica at the end of September. I read that it is not advisable to drive in Costa Rica after dark.

We will be arriving at SJO at 8pm, and planning to stay in SJ town area. According to Google map, the drive is around 30 minutes on Route 1. It looks like a major route to me. I'd like to know if it is still safe to drive that stretch at night, or should I avoid it completely?

Does it get dark earlier than 5:30 - 6pm in the month of September?

Thanks in advance.
