I wondered if anyone could advise us.
We are landing in Juan Santamaria international airport early afternoon where we are hiring a 4x4. Our first destination is Tortuguero and our plan is to drive on out of the Alajuela area about an hour and find a nice quiet place (not expensive!) to rest and sleep our first night en route to Cariari.
My question is, Google maps suggest we go from the airport southwards via San Jose onto Route 32 but to us it looks shorter going east via Heredia and catching the 32 outside Braulio Carrillo.Any thoughts? Also, anyone recommend us a nice place to stop off just for the night, or will we find plenty places on the way?
