5 road trip adventures in Costa Rica

Ashley Harrell ยป Lonely Planet ยป

Some of the most interesting, little-explored destinations are only accessible by car, and for the adventurous traveler, thereโ€™s simply no substitute for freedom.

In some cases, the drive itself โ€“ and all the striking scenery along the way โ€“ becomes a highlight of the trip. For those with the desire and the 4×4 (almost certainly necessary if you are planning to drive off the highway), here are the country’s top five nerve-shredding road trips.

โ€ฆ

The roads in some areas are poorly marked, curvy, pothole-ridden, flooded and occasionally non-existent; do your research and check road conditions before setting out.

1. Cerro Chirripรณ in Parque Nacional Chirripรณ

2. The Monkey Trail โ€“ A shortcut between Playa del Coco and Playa Flamingo

3. San Gerardo de Dota โ€“ a charming town set in a high-altitude cloud forest where one ofย Central Americaโ€™s rarest and most beloved birds โ€“ the quetzal.

4. The drive toย Drake Bay.

5. Rio Celeste โ€“ The forest surrounding the river is lush and wild, providing a home to an abundance of Costa Rican fauna, including the iconic jaguar.
