Closure of Escazu to Caldera highway (27)

If we are staying in the Monteverde area and heading from there to San Jose, will this road closure affect us? And how long will it take to go from Monteverde to San Jose and what routes would you take? Thanks!

This closure won't affect you, really, mostly people who are heading for Pacific beaches. From Monteverde to San Jose, the first thing you would need to do is to get to the Inter American Highway. Drive from Monteverde to Santa Elena and from there to the highway.

From there, you just follow the InterAmerican highway into San Jose. Pretty simple, really.

Agree with Hattie...just take Pan Am Hwy #1...from Santa Elena to San Jose no more than 3 hours...
