DRIVING DIRECTIONS FOR COSTA RICA

As we touch on in our related blog post聽Costa Rica Transportation: 10 Ways To Get From Point A To Point B Throughout Your Trip, a popular method of Costa Rica transportation is a personal vehicle rental. If you have read our blog post Renting A Car In Costa Rica: Should You Do It?聽(as well as our other helpful articles Costa Rica Car Rentals: How Not To Fall For A Car Rental Scam and Costa Rica Car Rentals: Credit Card Insurance Coverage And Declining Part CDW With Costa Rica Car Rental Insurance), once you have made the decision to rent a vehicle, the next wave of questions you will ask yourself will likely revolve around routes, drive times, driving distances, and other in-country driving logistics. If you plan to fly into and/or out of the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (a.k.a., the LIR Airport), then one of the first tasks at hand will be to secure driving directions from the LIR Airport to whichever destination you plan to travel to at the start of your trip.

Fortunately, we have compiled a list of driving directions for Costa Rica (complete with maps and downloadable/printable direction copies) to save you precious trip planning time. If you are asking yourself, “How do I get to the LIR Airport from…” or “How do I get from the LIR Airport to…” either the SJO Airport, La Fortuna (Arenal), Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, Samara, Tamarindo, Coco, or Puerto Viejo (de Talamanca), don’t miss the information we have pulled together for you below.

Tip:

  • When accessing any of the driving directions documents we provide below, don’t forget to save a copy to your device or preferred cloud-service provider, and/or print a hard copy for your records. This will allow you to access the directions at a later date if you find yourself without internet access during your trip, while on the road, and/or if your GPS stops working.
