Definitely drive, it's a wasted opportunity if you don't, and nothing to worry about if you're used to UK rush hour.
Also the boat ride into Tortuguero is a great traveling experience: https://www.twoweeksincostarica.com/...to-tortuguero/
Once outside San Jose, driving is very, very easy, get a satnav and it's very straight forward, really, easy. Even in San Jose, the satnav will guide you through all the small, busy roads, accurately and easily.
The only realy bad traffic we hit, was on the road that heads to Limon when we did Braullio Carillio but this is a major, arterial road to the ports so the road had a great many, huge, trucks on it plus there were some kind of road works going on, we didn't have issues anywhere else.
