How far away???

Hi

We are flying into San Jose and taking a transfer to the Arenal area. How far of a drive is this? As well, a few days later, we are then taking another transfer to the Playa Conchal. How far of a drive is that?

thanks,

jen

SJO north via Panamerican to right turn to San Ramon. Thru San Ramon to Fortuna. 3 hours with stop for a snack. Road is fine.. Just pretty curvey in spots. Well marked. We drove it in June ... in daylight. Very pretty drive. Not sure I would be comfortable at night on this road between San Ramon and Fortuna.

Just an aside. It seems to me that everything in Costa Rica is 3 hours away from where one is at the moment (smile)

Enjoy the trip
