I’ll be arriving on January 5th at 1:30pm and I’m thinking about either renting a car or taking a shuttle to Monte Verde with my girlfriend. I’ve found a shuttle that leaves at 3:15pm or I can rent a car and drive and it’s about 3.5 hours.
If my plane is delayed or it takes long at customs I risk missing the shuttle.
If my plane is delayed or it takes long at customs and I rent a car the last 1.5 hours of driving will be at night at likely the most difficult point: off of the highway and up route 606 to Santa Elena.
Is it completely crazy to drive up route 606 after dark in a 4×4 SUV?
