New Autopista Del Sol Open

The new Autopista Del Sol highway from San Jose to Caldera openeed on the 27th of January.

Over 30 years from the date of the original plans, this highway, at 77km long, promises to halve the journey time from San Jose to the Central Pacific Port of Caldera, knocking between 45 minutes and one hour off the original journey time.

Not only will the opening of this highway be of great convenience to travelers but it promises to reduce carbon emissions from cars journeying the route by shortening the journey time making petrol and deisel use more efficient. Another step on the route to Costa Rica's carbon neutrality.

The route has a number of tolls which are levied by the highway operator.
