Better get those playlists in order and snacks stocked up because it's going to be a long drive. Costa Rica is located on the Central American isthmus, which connects North and South America. The fastest ways to reach the tropical country are by airplane or sea vessel (cruise ship, yacht), but it is possible by means of car. The entirety of the Americas is connected by a road known as the Interamerican Highway or Pan-American Highway, making it simple to drive to Costa Rica from either direction. However, speed-bumps may occur during your road-trip. You will be passing through numerous countries as you make your way to your final destination, which means you will also be crossing many borders. To ensure all goes smoothly, make sure you have all the proper documents handy including: driver's license, registration and the original title (no copies) of the vehicle. Also, notify your bank and credit card companies that you will be passing through many foreign countries so that your card is not declined when you fill 'er up!
