    Costa Rica, Uvita.

    Rancho Diandrew www.ranchodiandrew.com

    About 2 miles north of Uvita there is a sign at a dirt road on the east side of the highway that says Rancho Diandrew, 4 km.

    They have rooms, camping, jungle hiking, local swimming holes. Highly recommended place to stay.

    4. Address/directions/coordinates - Miguel Hidalgo No. 21 Concordia, Sinaloa.
    5. Rating- Dont know

    13. Overall impression- Concordia is a tranquil town, 30 minutes from Mazatlan on the way down from the Espinazo. the town is a good alternative if you don't want to go into Mazatlan after riding down from Durango. The hotel is clean, comfortable and everything works. No restaurant in hotel but plenty of options close by. If you want a few beers speak to Mario, the owner and he will sort it out for you.

    Thanks for the solid info...I am riding down to CR in December.

    Nothing fancy, just a Point A to Point B ride on a dependable KLR650.

    Anyone make the ride recently? I would be interested in your reports and costs. :deal

    I have been reading up on the HUBB and such.

    Thanks again.:thumbup

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm going to stay in Mazatlan for the night because it is a bit of a drive to Durango considering the ferry got in at 11:30am. :/ Anyone here in Mazatlan, or recommendations?

    Bummer, I picked up a room at the oldest hotel in town, the Delmar. I got a clean room with a rock hard bed, hot water, A/C and a tv for 300 pesos. :/

    I think you mean the Bel-mar in Olas Altas...

    that's where the Duke used to stay when he would come down Marlin fishing....

    I'm not in Maz now or I'd give you the .05 peso tour.....
