"Roads are nothing like in the..." Driving Hazards Tip by Sandlapper

Driving Hazards, Costa Rica: 32 reviews and 30 photos

Roads are nothing like in the USA. Neither are the drivers. Be careful. Potholes are everywhere, roads are narrow, double yellow lines mean nothing.
That said, I would not consider a vacation there without renting a car...a 4 wheel drive car. Although I never needed the 4 wheel drive, I could see where it could be used.
