Travel time from SJO to Esparza, CR?

We arrive in SJO at 2:30 and are hoping to make it to Esparza (where we are staying the night) before sundown/by 6pm. I was told the travel time should be about 1 1/2 hours which, after factoring in time for customs and picking up our rental car, means we should get in by about 6pm. Is this accurate? Anyone driven it recently? Thanks!

maybe closer to one hour. 6 pm sounds about right.

To Esparza is definitely closer to 1.5 hours than 1 hour.

But yes, an hour to get out of the airport, half an hour to get your rental car and you should be on the road by 4 pm which will give you plenty of time to get to Esparza before dark.
