car ferry from Paquera to Puntarenas in July

We will be traveling from Cabuya to the ferry, how long should we allow for the drive? Also, can you make reservations ahead? Thank you!

It should take you about an hour....depends on the weather, time of the year and road conditions. You cannot make reservations, so I suggest you get there much earlier than the sailing time because you have to get someone to physically go to the terminal and purchase tickets and return to the vehicle. Driver is the only one allowed in the car as it goes onto the ferry. All passengers walk on (and they all have separate tickets). It is best to give yourself extra time to coordinate all of this, especially if you have not done this before. For those who are regulars, we know the drill and it isn't as confusing.
