Road to Monteverde closed starting next week
Tourists looking to save some money on a low season jaunt to Monteverde, take note. The main highway to the cloud forest national park in north-central Costa Rica, Route 606 between Guacimal and Santa Elena, will see road closures for six weeks starting Sept. 23, according to a statement from the National Roadway Council (CONAVI).
Between 6:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Sept. 23 through Oct. 31, the road will be completely closed to all non-emergency traffic. Travelers are advised to take Route 145 through Juntas de Abangares, following on to Marsellesa until Dos de Tilarán before reconnecting with the 606. CONAVI said the alternate route through Juntas de Abangares is in good shape.
