Road Closures and Traffic Delays in Costa Rica
Use your vacation time wisely and don’t get stuck in traffic.
Watch our updates on this page and we’ll keep you in the know and on the move! Besides, wouldn’t you rather be beachside watching the waves, than viewing someone’s bumper? 😉
- Thursday, September 15th is a national holiday so traffic will be at a standstill as parades of shcool children and marching bands celebrate Independence Day.
- Roadworks continue to slow traffic along the Pan-American Highway approaching Liberia and in the city itself. Do allow extra journey time, especially if you are airport-bound!
- South Pan-American at km 32: Traffic is regulated following road damage from Chicarronera Chiquiza to Perez Zeledon. Allow for extra journey time.
- Route 708 (Sarachi/Rio Cuarto): Closed as a preventative measure.
Rainfall is usually restricted to afternoon showers through green season. For the best travel conditions, plan to start long drives early so that the final destination is reached before the rains begin.
Should you get caught driving in heavy rainfall, pull over and wait for the visibility to improve before continuing your journey.
Rain time is great siesta time, so kick back in your hammock and enjoy! Return To Contents
