All routes open again
Routes 36 Limón - Cahuita - Puerto Viejo and 142 La Fortuna - Nuevo Arenal - Tilarán are now open again. The entire road network of Costa Rica is now passable. Work is still going on to repair damage and the saturation of the soil can continue to cause new disruptions. You can therefore expect traffic jams and longer travel times in the coming days. Please inform yourself about the current situation locally or via our Customer Experience Team in the next few days before departure.
With this bulletin we end our reporting on this extraordinary situation and thank you for your understanding.
