I'm told when we leave Dominical we could take a route through the mountains (which we would prefer for different scenery) or go back along the coast again. Based on where the house is located I'm told it will be the same time - about 3.5-4 hours.
So my question for anyone local or who has made this trip is whether or not either one has any advantages? What kind of traffic should we expect on a Saturday. When we were leaving the airport Tuesday around 3 PM traffic was terrible on the opposite side coming into San Jose. I'm very worried about a Saturday morning although I'm hoping, if anything, most locals would be headed OUT of San Jose and towards the beaches on the weekend.
