NO big trucks on road to Arenal
by Mario Cordero | Jun 4, 2012
The regulation discussed in this blog post which bans all articulated trucks from route 702, is still valid in 2020
This is the road to La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano, going through San Ramon, Angeles Norte and San Lorenzo.
The route was not originally built for the really large 18 wheelers and they could not use it before late 2008. At that time a huge landslide destroyed the old concrete bridge at Rio Cataratas and it was replaced with a wider Bailey bridge. The curves on both sides of the river were also widened allowing the big trucks to use the bridge and the road.
This pleasant and scenic route became a nightmare for all the drivers that, all of a sudden, met with one of these monsters coming in the opposite direction taking both lanes to barely fit in some of the blind curves.
In the last few years, more than half of the accidents on this road involve at least one 18 wheel truck.
So I welcome the decision and expect many more quiet and pleasant trips when driving to Arenal Volcano Costa Rica.
Find Private Transfers
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.
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!
Very Friendly and Professional
Fabian and Jimmy were great! Both are very friendly and professional. Mario and his wife were excellent with communication and planning. Will recommend Morpho to all my friends and family. Gracias y pura vida! ✌️
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!
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.
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.
…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!
