Driving in Costa Rica (Caribbean side)?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 10 day trip to Costa Rica in the fall, and we were planning on renting a car and driving along the Caribbean side. This is a map of our planned stops:

Basically I think we'd fly into San Jose, rent the car and then drive to La SElva biological station, then to Siquirres, and finally down Cahuita. Ive heard a lot from people who have driven on the Pacific side, but not much else. I've also heard a lot of mixed reviews about whether or not driving is a good idea. My hubby (who will be doing said driving) was born and raised in the South and spent most of his high school years off roading in the country, and now we live in NYC, where he's taken a shine to city driving. I just want to make sure we're not getting in over our heads, and know what we're getting into.

Also any suggestions of routes, and ways to break up the trip would be great!

Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
