I had a month to go explore Central America moving between jobs, and took the opportunity to visit Costa Rica after visiting Cuba and before wrapping it up in Nicaragua. Compared to Cuba and Nicaragua, Costa Rica is easy travel, very touristy to the point of almost being too touristy. Everything is well organized, people speak English and it’s very easy to do things and find your way around, although – ofcourse – it will cost you, travel in Costa Rica is upscale prices, above all the other Central America countries I’ve been to.

From the unimpressive San Jose capital, I did two main areas on the way to Nicaragua. The first was a the circle going north from San Jose to La Paz, La Fortuna, Rio Celeste, and then back down to Monteverde. The other area, was a beach hoping tour of the west coast leading all the way up to the Nicaraguan border. There are some great beaches there, white sand, clear blue water, and fluffy clouds hanging in clear blue skies. Many of the nicer beaches requires a 4×4 to get to, and it was well worth the hassle to get away from the tourist crowds.


So, to give you a taste of the Costa Rica west-coast Guanacaste beaches…
