We are travelling down from Guanacaste region to Alajuela to stay our last evening before flying home.
We want to drive down a route we didn't take on the way up & hence considering Route 21 and either the "Bridge of Friendship" over on Route 18 and then onto Highway 1, or alternatively, carrying on the 21 down towards eventually Playa Naranjo (on the 161) and taking the ferry across to Puntarenas and then onto Highway 1.
We have all day & are not really in any great rush - ferry times are 12.30 & 5.30pm but not possible to book a place, so if we dont get on, we may have a problem.
Are there any recommendations for either route & which would give us a better day - stopping off as necessary to see any sights, have lunch, which are the worst roads for driving etc?
Thanks for the advice.
