Some Important Driving Tips :

– Ask directions frequently if in doubt (mix of pointing & English do work)
– Use your horn regularly to warn (everybody does)
– Keep your speed down (especially on rural roads)
– Park your car where it will be watched (pay 200 – 300 colones)
– Never leave anything of value in your car
– Gas stations are not always round the bend – keep your tank topped up
– Be particularly wary at night (for pedestrians and livestock)
– Treat mountain roads with extra caution (fog, floods and landslides)
– Watch out for branches or boulders at the roadside – a broken-down car is ahead
– Slow down when you see signs for speed bumps – there are not always painted yellow!
– Give everyone else on the road plenty of room

… Enjoy your stay by driving carefully.
