Traffic on Route 27 that connects San José with the province of Puntarenas will only flow towards the capital on Saturday and Sunday afternoons to keep traffic moving as travelers return from Semana Santa vacations along the Pacific coast.

Between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., all highway lanes on the stretch between Ciudad Colón and Pozón de Orotina will only allow vehicle traffic towards San José.
Motorists traveling to the Pacific region during those hours can use alternate routes including Route 3 through Atenas-Monte Aguacate-Orotina; Route 1 through Monte Cambronero or Route 239 at Ciudad Colón – Puriscal – Turrubares and then taking the exit to Pozón de Orotina.
