Many times during Costa Rica’s rainy season, I will say to people, “I know that road, and I would not drive it at night.” When one veers way off the beaten path, a harmless mud hole might turn into a monster that all but swallows a vehicle.
Roads wash away; landslides block mountain passages. Shallow streams can suddenly swell to demonic rivers.
Unmarked muddy roads in the night might lead to a dead end if one takes the wrong turn. When in doubt, be smart!
