My Short tour of Costa Rica

Posted by on Feb 2, 2010 in Costa Rica, Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on My Short tour of Costa Rica

January 18-19, 2010 Costa Rica is so Americanized they’ll accept US Dollars or Colones. $1 = ~550 colones It was some strange math to wrap my brain around. <> The room at Playas del Coco was clean, inexpensive ($20/night) and beachfront, and since i was still thinking I had plenty fo time to get to Panama, I decided t stay another day. I was also trying to get in touch with Dr. Monica in Liberia, as well as a couple I met in line at the Costa Rica border–an American couple that operate a tropical fish farm in Costa Rica who’d given me their phone # and invited me for a visit. It sounded like a great thing to do, and I knew they were somewhere close. While sitting on the porch waking up, JP and I visited with...

After dodging a bunch of “helpers” and paying a $1 “exit fee”, I now needed to get into this line… was it a line? Not so much. Migracion: oofa. That was going to take some time. So I got OUT of line, and decided to exit the...

Brian (Four Days in Granada)

[January 13-14-15: Nicaragua] [yes, I am going back in time trying to get caught up on the blog] I was hot. I’d ridden through some invisible curtain and the temps soared while the humidity rose. Dang, it’s just plain UNCOMFORTABLE in a full-on riding suit. So I was irritable, my memory wasn’t helping me to find the really cool place Karina and I had found two years ago, and I was just going to leave Granada and go out to the Monkey Hut on Laguna de Apoyo. I stopped and asked the guard at the Western union office how to get to the Laguna, and was headed out of town. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted a hostel that looked like I could enter with the bike. As I backpaddled the bike the wrong way down...
