... as we drove along. Were making good time and got into the town of Puntarenas and the traffic came to a standstill.

Sit for ten minutes and then move forward about 2 or 3 car lengths and then stop again. The

On the other side there was a van waiting for us. Another 2 hours on rough roads upwards to the ...

I had a nice chicken and rice dish for lunch with a glass of wine and a few games of ping pong in Martina's Bar. We then hit the beach again, ...

After some time in the more rugged destinations of Guatemala, Nicaragua and Belize, it certainly felt like, if anything, coming to the jungle here was actually a return to more familiar civilisation - although we've been warned that there are prices to match. Nonetheless, we've got some great experiences lined up before we head on down to South ...
