road condition in Costa Rica from Golfito to Palma Sur

We are planning a vacation in Costa Rica. Can anybody tell me what the condition of the road is between Golfito and Palma Sur ?

We want to rent a car there and travel up north from Golfito to San Gerardo.

the road from golfito to the interamericano is paved, as is the interamericano from rio claro all the way to san gerardo, but the road from the interamericano to san gerardo most likely isn't paved. call your hotel or any hotel there for that matter and ask about road conditions in the immediate area.

Just returned from the Panama border a few days ago so I can't respond to the current conditions from Golfito to Rio Claro. But from Rio Claro to Palma Sur, the road is better than in previous years. Not so many potholes! There was a great deal of patching done so the road is good but slightly rough thru that stretch. From Palma Norte to Dominical the road is great. Have a safe trip, hope it helps! (Just an FYI, about 15 mins. north of Rio Claro is a mandatory road stop for passport and license check.)
