Driving in Costa Rica: Toll to Escazú Goes Up
The drive from Costa Rica's San José to the southwestern suburb of Escazú will cost a bit more next year.
New tolls slated for May 2009 will charge cars ˘325 (nearly U.S. $0.60) each way, the daily La Nación reported.
The new toll marks an almost four-fold increase from the current ˘75 ($0.13), meant to finance the construction of the highway to the central Pacific port of Caldera, a much awaited project that began in January.
Demolition of the old toll booths began Wednesday, according to the Public Works and Costa Rica Transport Ministry.
San Jose Guide:
San Jose, the Capital of Costa Rica, is the hub of all transportation in Costa Rica. For that reason, it is usually the first place you will visit while in Costa Rica. It lies between three Costa Rica volcanoes. There is a large variety of Costa Rica hotels, parks, restaurants and attractions for visitors. The first thing noticed about San Jose is the local friendliness. The city is set up on a pretty logical grid system. When on foot and touring the capital, Costa Ricans, also known as Ticos, are always willing to lend a hand with directions. Always remember though, locals use landmarks not street names for directions, and if you just can't figure out where you are, find a local church. Every church in Costa Rica faces west. While in the Capital, you have access to the best public transportation in all of Central America.
