Tolls drop on Costa Rica’s Caldera Highway

August 20, 2010

 

Autopistas del Sol, the company that built and operates the Caldera Highway, announced on Monday that it will lower tolls on Friday, Aug. 27.
 
Fees at all four toll booths will drop by an average of ¢27.5 (5 U.S. cents). Cars traveling the entire highway will pay a total of ¢110 ($0.22) less.
 
The new tariffs for four-wheel automobiles will be ¢290 ($0.57) at the Escazú Plaza, ¢430 ($0.85) at the San Rafael toll station, ¢570 ($1.13) at the Atenas stop and ¢430 ($0.85) in Pozón.
 
Autopistas del Sol credited the fee drop to the falling price of the U.S. dollar versus the Costa Rican colón, which on Monday was valued at ¢506 to the dollar.  
 
Toll booth fees are revised quarterly to account for the colón’s performance against the dollar.
