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).
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.
The side roads lead to the beach front road.
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.
Feel the Beauty. Know the love. Live the power! Ride!
