Hi I will be in CR in August and I am renting a Car and driving to Arenal. I Have been looking on google maps and there looks like there is a route to Arenal that is all paved road and it bypass San Ramon. Is this true?
Also what time does it start to get dark in CR we are planning to leave Arenal and head back to Los Suenos around 6pm.
I know a lot of people have recommended not doing a day trip from Los Suenos to Arenal and driving at night, but I only have a limited amount of time and I really want to see the volcano and visit the hot springs and get the most out of this trip because I don't know when or if I will ever be back in CR. My husband is a truck driver so he has driven in all kinds of road conditions at night but if it is really that bad we will consider another option.
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
