Monteverde Road Construction Update 2014

by | Sep 26, 2014

The main road going up to Monteverde has been under major construction for several months now.  The slow and dangerous gravel road is becoming a wider, faster and safer route.

Starting this week the road is going to be closed from 6:30 am to 5 pm.  This means most people coming/going to the airport will need to use these alternate roads:

  • Las Juntas – this is the route we normally use when coming from Guanacaste or Liberia.  Very steep gravel route but ok for all except the very low vehicles.
  • Tilarán – this is the route used by the Jeep-boat-jeep and those coming from Arenal.  Also a steep gravel road that becomes difficult under rainy conditions.

Morpho Vans’ drivers are familiar with these alternate routes and we’ll keep operating private transfers to Monteverde and Santa Elena without interruptions.  Travel time from San Jose, however, will be about one hour longer than usual. These all-day closures will continue until the end of October 2014.  We must say we are pleased to see the heaviest of the construction being done during September and October, the lowest tourism season of the year.

At Morpho Vans we look forward to a better and safer road to this classic Cloud Forest destination, so more people can enjoy the magical foggy landscape and the spectacular creatures of the Monteverde Cloud Forest, like the hummingbird in the image.

Most Reliable Ride!

No better way to end a long day of travel than to see a friendly face holding a sign with my name. From being easy to identify to always arriving early for a pick up, Morpho drivers are the best!

Company is fantastic as is the people you employ

Mario, your company is fantastic as is the people you employ. Jimmy was probably the best person to get us acquainted with Costa Rica. Bring my phone back to me, will never be forgotten and I will recommend you guys to all my friends and family traveling to Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

I would recommend this company with the highest of praise and confidence!

Morpho Vans was a huge help to us. We needed a ride 6 hours away and they responded promptly and efficiently and provided us with an excellent car and an even better driver- Jimmy. We called them for every ride we needed in Costa Rica- I would recommend this company with the highest of praise and confidence!

Reliable and comfortable

This was my first experience with Morphovans and it was so easy. I reserved the van online and Francisco, my driver, was waiting for me outside the airport with a sign to welcome me. He was very friendly and efficient. And the van was very clean and comfortable. I will definitely use this company again and will recommend it to anyone.

Excellent service with Morpho Vans on our trip to Costa Rica!

Excellent service with Morpho Vans on our trip to Costa Rica! We had two families of 4 people and all trips were great. SJO to Jaco area in a van for 8 people (with free WIFI), then Jaco to Lost Igurano resort, which is a 5+ hour trip on winding roads, and finally a trip back to the airport at 4 am. Drivers always arrived early but were fine waiting for us. We stopped at local restaurants for great meals. All trips were safe and efficient. I highly recommend if you are looking for transportation in Costa Rica.

…started with the best

We were really tired from the flight so it was a relief to have someone waiting for us on time. The vehicle was very good. The driver was so nice and friendly. Our trip started with the best way because of Morpho vans. Thank you!
