Vacation Traffic Collapses Major Routes

The Ruta 27 will be reversible - one way to San Jose - on Saturday AND Sunday

Headed for the beach this long weekend? Better arm yourself with patience for the ride to and then the ride back.

Globalvia has been cautioning drivers for the last couple of days on Twitter and their website of the tremendous congestion on the Ruta 27 (San Jose – Caldera), the main route from San Jose to the Pacific Coast.

On the social networks, similar conditions are reported on the Ruta 1 – the Interamericana to Pacific and the Ruta 32 – to the Caribbean.

Starting Saturday, but the big day is Sunday, expect similar conditions for the return trip.

On Saturday and Sunday (April 20 and 21), the Ruta 27 will be closed to westbound traffic from Cuidad Colon to Orotina from 1 pm to 7 pm, to allow ‘reversible lane’ –  one way only – to San Jose 2 pm to 6 pm.

Westbound traffic during the closure will have to use the ‘old road to Jaco’ or the Ruta 1.

If you are one of the thousands on the roads this weekend, a few recommendations:gas up the tank before heading out, check your vehicle (tires, oil, water, etc), have plenty of water on hand to keep hydrated (and the radiator), snacks and treats for the kids, and don’t forget the tunes.

Buckle up. Have a safe trip!

One last thing, crossing the double line will cost you ¢318,000 colones and 6 points on your license. It can also cost you your life, the life of your passengers and others on the road. Don’t do it. Drive responsibly. Better get home late than not at all.
