The road to the campground was full on 4wd road much of the way. happy to be on the klr.... i think it would have been beyond the ability of a Vstrom (at least with me on it!!)

i saw palm orchards all over coastal costa rica. I found this place to stop and ask what they were growing. there was some sort of palm nut inside the orange/reddish fruits. it tasted like crap. i got to help load a few of the palm nut clusters onto the truck. We all got a good laugh of me struggling to throw them up into the truck....good times...

...and then i screwed around a bit trying to find a place close to the beach...on the way back to golfito it started raining hard. Really f'n crazy hard....and i found out my headlight didn't work anymore....was able to make my way to a gas station...and open up the list of hotel names that had been sent to me earlier (Thank you Tania !!!)..and was able to just say 'donde esta..." and point to the hotel names on the message in my phone. i was able to ride right to a hotel with covered parking within 5 minutes because of the directions. Again, a lifesaver ...and saved me from much hassle.....

if they look at the map like it's a book written in a language that they do not understand, just ignore the directions they give you.....
