April 2015 – Schedule of road closures in Monteverde

by | Apr 13, 2015

Monteverde road construction makes progress

The project to enlarge and improve the main road to Monteverde has made huge progress in the last few weeks.  A section of several kilometers from Monteverde down is already finished and the big machines have moved down toward the village of Guacimal. While all this is very good news, starting today, Monday April 13th, the road will only be open at night and for a few 20-30 minute intervals during the day. Also the construction will be located further down the mountain, just below the intersection to San Luis. For this reason we can’t keep using the shortcut through San Luis and all trips to/from San Jose, Puntarenas, Manuel Antonio or Jaco must be planned to go through during the opening times. Here is the new schedule:  the road will only be open from:

  • 9:30 to 9:50 am
  • 12 noon to 12:30 pm
  • 3 pm to 3:20 pm
  • all night from 5:30 pm to 6:30 am

Since the closure is now further away from Monteverde, your pick-up times need to be 30-45 minutes before the closing time, depending on your hotel.   Hotels in the town of Santa Elena pick up 30 minutes before.  Hotels beyond the town like Fonda Vela, for example, need to start 40 minutes before the closing time. We will plan all pick up times so you will not miss a flight or a ferry and so you won’t get stuck for hours on the road. As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need assistance in planning your trip to Monteverde.

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!

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!

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.

Great communication before the trip and during, even when our plans kept changing they were really responsive and nothing was a problem.

Clean car, great driver, punctual.

Would use again without hesitation.

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!

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!
