This Itinerary makes no sense. Are you driving all the way to Dominical just to backtrack over the mountain to Irazu in Cartago? (not Arenal - that is a completelt different volcano hours away) then going to Rio Perolis which is in the opposite direction to El Sapito requireing additional backtracking.

How many days are you spending in Cartago, because if this is a day trip it is not even possible.

There are no pineapple plantations anywhere near Diminical.

What might be the cost to drive passengers between the SJO and Uvita?

@6, if you have found the driver, his/her rates might be different (your earlier post here).

If you mean an example of a private transfer rate, I.e. hiring a car and a driver for up to 4 passengers, see here: https:/… . E.g., SJO to Uvita, one way, per 1-4 ppl, - US$195.
