I had been planning on booking return flight from Drake Bay to SJ for 14th of January 2015, however having mentioned the size of the plane my boyfriend is now freaking out and saying he'd rather drive than risk crashing in Sansa's small planes! If anyone can resassure him or give your honest opinion about the two airlines it would be very much appreciated. If he can't be persuaded (its at the end of our trip so I don't want him worrying about it all the holiday) then I was thinking of renting a car again and doing the journey via San Isidro. On the way down to Uvita we are coming via the coastal road so wanted to vary it and travel back through the mountains as have heard that it is spectacular. Also thinking of stopping off at Monte Azul in San isidro for lunch (highly rated on tripadvisor) So my question is if we did drive, would this work:
Water taxi Drake Bay to Sierpe at 7am, rent hire car, drive to Monte Azul for lunch perhaps 12-2/2.30pm, continue on to San Jose staying last night in Santa Ana in the hills.
I have heard there can be fog on some parts of the journey, so would leaving Monte Azul in San Isidro at 2pm give us enough 'safe' time to reach San Jose before dark etc.
Sorry this has all been rather long winded but any help/comments would be greatly appreciated. All our trip is now planned and this is the last bit to sort out. Roll on January.
