The road down to the South Pacific is an easy, fast (hot) ride. The highway is in good shape.
Today (July 17, 2018) I intended to go spend the night at Esterillos Este, but ended up going all the way to Ojochal. I stopped a couple times for photos at Playa Galardonada and Play Hermosa.
I love stopping for photos because it helps me take all the beauty and quiet in. A pause to appreciate the spaces which I move through while riding.
At Playa Esterillos Este, I stopped for lunch at the colorful hotel/restaurant Alma del Pacifico.
The last few times I have been down past Quepos, I have seen Water buffalo hauling carts. Today I saw four on their way back from unloading.
Fast highway riding wears me out more than mountain riding. But I simply love the lushness of the South Pacific. I hope to go to Playa Tortuga in the morning before heading back.
But now I can chill at the pool and in my little cabin at Villas Gaia, which thankfully are letting me stay here for only $50. 🙂 Costa Rica is getting too expensive to travel, sadly.
Riding in Costa Rica: Feel the beauty! Know the love. Live the power.
