Caldera Highway Work from San Jose to Jaco is Well Underway

Construction began recently west of San Jose on the first phase of the long-awaited Caldera highway project, which will provide a much faster route to the Pacific coast. Plans for the 77 kilometer (48 mile) highway have been in the works for years and have finally broken free of bureaucratic quicksand. The project carries a $230 million price take and construction will cost motorists extra time as it will temporarily increase congestion even with the implementation of numerous traffic management plans. The existing route is a slow, winding, two-lane highway that crosses the Aguacate pass while the new highway could reduce travel time between San Jose and Jaco by as much as an hour. This is a significant savings and offers more accessibility to the central and south Pacific coastal areas of Costa Rica where Ventana del Pacifico is located.
