Route One: The most spectacular route is easily the one through Bajo del Toro (4WD may be necessary, inquire in Sarch?, and reroute through Naranjo and Zarcero Route Three, if you don't think you'll make it to Bajo del Toro). Turn left (West) at the airport exit onto the Pan American Highway towards Sarch? (and San Ram?n, but you aren't going all the way there), after ~23 km turn right (North) towards Sarch? and Sarch? Norte (don't miss the woodworkers and oxcarts). Here you may have to ask for the road to Bajo del Toro, it looks like any other residential street as it passes out of town to the North. After 6 or 8 km of climbing switchbacks and spectacular views you plummet another 10 km through beautiful forests to Bajo del Toro and the winding road (mostly paved and much better than the cart path it is shown as on most maps) through rolling pastures into R?o Cuarto where you turn left (West) towards Venecia, Aguas Zarcas* and Quesada (known as San Carlos to all but map makers) to Florencia where you turn right (North) on 35 for 10 km, to 4 West for 17 km, to the left turn (South) onto 142 into La Fortuna (10 km).Total driving time approx. 4 hours.
