Question by tmeineke7: Best way to drive from San Jose Costa Rica airport to Manuel Antonio Park?
We are going to Costa Rica in January. We would like to go to Manuel Antonio Park and I thought it might be interesting to drive. However, we don’t like driving on mountainous roads with no guard rails, and I understand that the valley route includes a rope bridge. What is the best way to go to stay on a high quality road, even if it takes a little longer to get there?
Answer by yellowstone
Both roads are mountainous with few guard rails however the old and most direct road through Atenas is windier and more hair raising. The traffic on the Panamanian high way is very slow because of all the trucks so you shouldn’t get as stressed. Once you get to the coast, just follow the signs to Jaco and then to Manuel Antonio. I can’t remember a rope bridge on either of the two most travelled routes.
