We packed all our belongings and headed out from Playas del Coco at 8:am on April 1st. Our first stop was the car rental agency where we renewed our Tucson rental for another month. On the road again, and it felt great! We all get very excited at the prospect of new discoveries and adventures.

Look Both Ways...and SPRINT

A travel blog entry by iancogswell

To end our first day (yes I know I'm late), we had lunch and dinner from local stores in Costa Rica. Wandering around the streets, we realized two things. 1. The drivers are crazy. 2. Many of the local men seem to find our group...'interesting'. The drivers (especially bus drivers) do not follow the whole red light, green light rule, and a cross …

The long road to San Jose

... to sit and do nothing! I caught a taxi at 5.30pm back to rejoin the group for the final night. There was a lot of traffic heading through Central San Jose. We were stuck for quite a long time in a rather dodgy looking area!! The taxi driver clearly had no idea where he was going - and it was lucky I was following our route on google maps, as I had to stop him taking me totally in the wrong direction, and guide him back to where I needed ...

    We stayed there on our way to Puerto Viejo from Playas del Coco. It was a nice place to stay, a little more than halfway of the distance to drive. It was just oo long a drive to do in one day with the two kids. There was a lot of traffic as it was the Sunday starting Semana Santa. We enjoyed this hotel, very simple but pretty with birds and a fish pond. Beds were comfortable.
