Road trips in Costa Rica

I decided to just have one page where many of my trips are listed. If you are interested in a certain road, click on that link and you can get an idea of what it is like. I still have more roads to add. I know this page is more for my own benefit so that I can have a space holder for all my trips. I don’t think many people are going to browse through so many albums! Hahaha! Still, it has been an enriching, moving experience for me to go through this process. To see all my trips in Costa Rica stirs my soul, brings tears of gratitude to my eyes. And, makes me want to go for another ride, right away!
