Hwy 1 & Hwy 27 Closed Between Pacific and San José

Hwy 1 (Pan American) Closed at Cambronero (west of San Ramón)

Hwy 27 (Caldera) closed between Orotina and Atenas

Both main routes between the north and Central Pacific and San José remain closed with no estimate for re-opening.  Frequent mud and rock slides are the result of unusually heavy rains across the Pacific and central mountains and valleys since mid-August.

Alternate Routes

The old highway (3) from Orotina to Atenas is the only route open from the west to San José.  This is a narrow winding two lane (one in each direction) road with no passing lanes.  Expect heavy traffic, very low speeds and long delays.
