The new highway from San Jose, Costa Rica to Caldera on the Pacific coast cuts at least an hour from the driving time and eliminates the sharp curves and one lane bridges. Most people focus on getting to the central Pacific towns now in an hour and a half – it also reduces the driving time from San Jose to Guanacaste (northwest Pacific coast) to about 3 and 1/2 hours.
But – the section from Atenas to Orotina is temporarily closed. Improvements need to be made to the sides of the highway in some cases, to avoid potential rocks and slides coming down onto the highway. Estimates are from a few weeks to a few months closed – in Tico time.
