I used this road to get to Rancho Corcovado & I was going to use the same road to leave corcovado. it is 1 of the 2 roads that Access Corcovado ! Jeez !

so, as always, its better to trust your instincts.


i stopped to get gas from a quicky mart . check out the load the other moto - guy is strapping to his bike

Lots of these kind of Palms around here. I think they are farmed for their fronds.

when i arrived in Jaco i rode around the town for a little while. fuck me what a shit-hole of a place. .

the main reason i stayed here is because i could ride up the coast to Puntarenas to catch the ferry to Paquera (Peninsula de Nicoya) which departs at 9:00.

Never trust directions from a local, we have gotten alot of laughs from this. Maybe they've never left their area? I think I know more of Costa Rica than alot of ticos now.
What was in the box? a moto fridge? Classic. I'm sure you saw the whole family on a bike with their weeks worth of shopping too....
I know this spot with the palms, just up the carretera from my place! Good trails close by, have to cable the bikes across the Sierpe. They grow those for palm oil, you smelt the factories....
I'll send you some colones for a dvd, I don't do gps but have some questions about the Bibri route.....
