Driving Customs of Costa Rica

While driving your car rental through Costa Rica, be mindful that driving there may not be the same as when you're driving at home. These are some Costa Rican rules to keep in mind:

  • The Pan-American Highway, the main mode of travel for most car users, has a normal speed limit of 50-55mph (80kmph). This highway passes through several small towns, however, and limits are known to drop to around 15-20mph (30kmph) in these areas due to schools.
  • Sinkholes, potholes, or uncovered manholes are usually marked with a pole or tree branch poking out of the road, making it a good idea to avoid these hazards.
  • Due to the differing qualities of fuel, it is recommended to use super gas, not normal gas, as that can cause maintenance problems in some cars.
Satellite navigation can be invaluable, as road signs are infrequent, and the most common method of getting directions involves marking a distance and direction from a local landmark.
