Southbound in Costa Rica

A travel blog entry by stevecori


Upon our arrival at the airport, we rented our trusty Suzuki steed, Pepe, which transported us quickly away from the barrios of San Jose and down to the remote and pot-holed but very beautiful Osa Peninsula. On the drive down, we selected what we later came to know as the road on the "Mountain of Death" - a moniker, in retrospect, that we suppose …
