Highway to Jaco Completed
Jaco Hotel blog is very pleased to announce the new highway from San Jose to Caldera has finally been completed as of 1/28/2010. This part of the trip used to go through some pretty twisty and steep mountain roads. Once you get to Caldera, the coastal highway has always been an excellent road, but the new route around the mountains is a huge improvement. The trip from the airport near San Jose to Jaco used to take between an hour and fifteen minutes and two hours. Drivers report the trip now takes less than an hour and half and can sometimes be completed in less than an hour, depending on traffic. If you are not in a hurry, you may wish to take the old route since its slightly more scenic, and with almost all the truck traffic moving to the new highway, it will quicker and safer too. Hooray! One more reason to visit Jaco hotel DoceLunas, your base for expoloring the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
