When you arrive at San Jose International Airport (Airport SJO below) and you want to travel next day to Arenal, Guanacaste, Puntarenas, Jaco or Quepos, it makes NO sense to stay your first night in a San Jose downtown hotel (bottom right below)
It only means you have to drive next day back to the International Airport and continue your journey in westbound direction (Highway 3) or northbound direction (Panamerican Highway / Costa Rica Highway 1)
