Tips for Driving
Wear your seat belts and beware of the speed limits. The speed limit can be 80km, 60km, or 40km. There are police speed traps so be careful. If you do get stopped just show them your passport and rental vehicle papers. They will give you a ticket that you can pay through the rental agency. You should learn a little Spanish for your trip like Donde esta Playa Nosara? would be very helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask locals for directions. They love to help but beware they don’t give the best directions. You may have to ask more than one person on your way. Lastly, on the dirt roads you should drive slow and with caution. There are narrow parts to the road and blind curves that can be hazardous if you are not familiar.
