Costa Rica Transportation in Rainy Season - Detours, etc.

by Pete
(USA)

When traveling during green season, what happens when there is a landslide or washout in the road/highway? What do you actually do? Wait? Go around? Go back? Transfer to another vehicle which is on the other side of the problem and continue? Thanks for your help.


Hey Pete! Thanks for the question.

When there is a landslide or washout, it can sometimes leave a place inaccessible for a day or more, depending on the severity. In general, if there is enough room to get around an obstacle - even just barely - Costa Rican bus drivers will do it. But if a road's completely blocked the vehicle will stop and certainly let out anyone who wishes to get off.

However, communication and organization is poor in public transportation, so there is little guarantee that there would be arranged transport on the other side of the slide. Despite this I imagine word would get out quickly and you'd have taxis or collective transport options lining up for interested travelers.

Though Costa Rica is always developing, in general the highways and roads outside the Central Highlands around San Jose, Heredia, Alajuela, etc are often in disrepair. The Panamerican Highway from Nicaragua to Panama, the two roads between San Jose and Puntarenas, and the road to Limon are all affected by landslides. It's best to ask a local before you go - perhaps contact whatever hotel you'll be staying in - if you want to get the most up to date road conditions. I hope you have a fantastic trip!
