Puerto Viejo to Xandari

We are leaving the PV area and heading to Xandari near SJO. Should we drive back through Braulio carillo or head north through Chilamante? How much longer would the northern route add to the drive? It was a grueling trip down to PV but I don't want to add too much time to the trip. Thanks for any thoughts or advice also on a quick place to get a bite to eat along either route closer to Xandari/Alajuela.

Thank you!

I would not go via Chilamante. It might look easy on a map - but - not really.

It is basically a 5-hour trip from Puerto Viejo to Alajuela and Xandari so you don't want to do anything to make it longer - unless you are planning on spending the night somewhere along the way.

Take a look here: www.yourtravelmap.com for distances, travel times and directions.
