Quepos, Costa Rica > Las Lajas, Panama – 343km
You would think with the low cloud that it was cold, but not the case. We had high humidity and high temps – 32 deg by 9:30, however once on the road it felt great, it was only when we stopped that we really felt the heat.
I love our coffee stop places
The road along the coast is definitely much better both for condition and scenery. Once we joined the main highway, CA2, it was much narrower and so bumpy it felt like we were riding on hexagonal wheels. A lot of trucks too. At one point we had to wait for a truck and trailer to back up so as to let the wider truck we were following past.
Another border today, that’s 6 borders in 7 days, all taking about 2 hours each. Was a lot of to and fro with stamps and stamps to validate stamps, copies of everything… it goes on and on. We find the best thing is for me to stay with the bikes while Charlie does the paperwork. He just asks ”what do I do next?” and people are so helpful. It just takes time.
Day 27 on this part of our trip, and had our first rain today. It lasted about 5 minutes or so, but was so heavy we could hardly see where to go. It was actually quite refreshing.
Staying at a lovely resort at Las Lajas right on the coast, sat on a chair enjoying the surf and another beautiful sunset.
Our hammock, pretty comfortable
