La Cruz > Quepos, Costa Rica – 330km


What a fabulous days’ ride, I am loving Costa Rica – for a start it sounds so exotic!!  Lots of farmland, not so populated, some time on the coast, reasonable roads, rainforest.

First glimpse of Costa Rica’s coastline, love to hear the sound of the waves.

Didn’t expect to see these, highrise hotels – this coast is a tourist hotspot

This is Steven, a Canadian on a tour in Costa Rica, and he owns a Tenere – he and Charlie hit it off talking bikes and trips.  Nice to meet you Steven, you and your wife should come see us NZ sometime!!

Whatever they were playing, it went on for hours with new people taking a spot when someone else left

Thunderstorm clouds were definitely all around us tonight, but no rain.
