We are flying into Liberia then going to Arenal the next day for a few days then heading to Flamingo Beach then to Playa Hermosa the night before we fly back. Here are the instructions I found here about the drive to Liberia:
From Liberia...take PAn Am Hwy. to Canas, take the "exit" to Tilaran...you will see an old bull fight ring at your left...take that road is the one to Tilaran...in Tilaran follow the signs to Nuevo Arenal...from there you will see the signs that will take you around the lake...all the way to La Fortuna...
Now, on our way back to the beach, we would like to view some different scenery so we looked on a map and thought about driving a different way to see more of the country from Arenal to Las Canas down to Limonal turning west to Moreno to Santa Cruz up to Belen to Playa Flamingo. Are the roads good enough to make the trip safely in a timely manner leaving Lost Iguana about noon?
Or should we return the way we came back to Liberia through Guardia to Filadelfia through Belen to Playa Flamingo?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you so much! I have received such great information on this forum.
