First week of June we\’ll be in Santa Elena and then plan to travel to Santa Teresa for the rest of our trip. Can we/should we – drive this distance or take the ferry?

Hi Margaret, 
From Santa Elena/Monteverde you don’t need to take the Puntarenas ferry across, it would actually probably add lots of time to your trip. Instead cut over on Route 18 and head south on Route 21 towards Paquera, Montezuma, etc. Best to have a 4×4 for this route. Hope this helps, make sure to check out our Rental Car Discount if you haven’t already.
