Playa Blanca and Costa de Pájaros, Puntarenas

I decided to go check out “Costa de Pájaros,” in Puntarenas. Don’t we all like exploring new places?:-)

I first went to Playa Blanca, which is a lovely beach. Not sure about swimming though, as the water looks murky from nearby mangroves (I think).

Route135
Route 132 to Punta Morales is nicely paved (this is the road to Playa Blanca and where the  turn off is to Costa de Pájaros) .

The road into Costa de Pájaros is about half paved, with some gravel and dirt as well. The side roads and beach front road once you are there are gravel.

Costa de Pájaros is a poor fishing village along the coast, with lots of little houses.

I enjoyed riding through this little town, especially its beach front roads, which were lined with little houses.

Costa de Pájaros is an interesting community. Very alive. People everywhere. I liked it.

I went right through it, then at some point took a right and ended up on gravel roads in the middle of nowhere for about an hour, heading back to the highway. It was fun. I will share those photos in another post. 

The song that came to mind on my way there was: Breathe. Breathe in the air. Don’t be afraid to care.
