How bumpy a ride from San Jose to Arenal area?

I am planning a trip down to the Arenal Volcano area for November, and I understand the ride from the airport is a 3 hour drive.
What I'm more concerned about is the safety of the drive.
Does the route out to the Arenal/ La Fortuana area involve alot of steep roads, with no barriers and sharp turns...that sort of thing.
I like to think I'm a pretty intrepid traveler, but I do get uncomfortable driving in treacherous conditions...
I know the roads down there aren't great...but would anyone call them...hazardous? Please be honest...
Any thoughts from those who have gone that way...
