Drive from la Paz waterfalls to la pavona boat docks?

Is this drive doable? Route looks simple on google maps, but don't want to make a bad call.

Thanks!

Thanks! Do you know if these roads are always passable? I know the roads can throw you off plan sometimes in Costa Rica and we have to catch a boat so we don't have room for error.

By August some times a lot of rain...and some floods...but most of the time OK to drive...the last 11 kms...you most drive slow...rocky road...hard bed...but not a biggie...I drove there maybe a week ago...and not problem at all....again common sense...check tires conditions...just in case...

Also make sure to leave plenty of time for any road problems if you are planning to make the 4pm boat. It's better to plan for the noon boat just in case, because Cariari or La Pavona are not places you'd particularly want to spend the night. If you arrive way before the public boats, there are often locals who will sell you a cheap seat on their boat. There is a restaurant and a small supermarket at the boat dock.
