    Nice!

    I spent some time there one January, in Tamarindo, a surf village on the west coast... Costa Rica is a pretty spectacular place and winter is the perfect time of year. Have fun and don't feed the alligators!

            Yeah, yeah ,yeah, keep rubbing it in. See if we care! Seriously though enjoy it. Nothing like the Caribbean. Absolutely no other place like it in the world.

            We will be back in Vieques, Puerto Rico (a small island off the southern coast of mainland Puerto Rico) for 2 weeks over Christmas, another 4 weeks from January into February, then 3 weeks from March into April. Love, love, love the islands. Can't friggin wait.to get back to our house there.

            Enjoy everything you can while your there. Be careful though, it's very addicting.

              Make arrangements to come down in January or March and we can drag race scooters! If you wan't to go riding for the day, we would have to circle around the island many, many times to get a day of riding in. No stop lights anywhere, 35mph max speed anywhere on the island. On a lot of the roads, you would be taking your life in your hands if you tried to go more than 15mph.

              I actually spent about 20 mins in Vieques once. We'd taken a boat from the mainland to go snorkeling, but it was during a coup in Haiti, and we were told to clear out so the Marines could practice maneuvers for Operation Uphold Democracy. I remember seeing groups of Black Hawks flying low along the shore, all day long, just yards from my hotel room... Anyway, beautiful place... Sounds like a blast! [pun in tended] Just be careful when picking up "shells" on the beach...

                  Three hour van ride to “Volcano Arenal” where we will spend three days at the base in La Fortuna. Sloths, cotamundies and iguanas. Doing ten zip lines and sixteen bridges tomorrow with live music in town at a local restaurante in the evening. Incredibly fabulous rolling green hill cattle ranches along the way. Bull fighting arena on the way but won’t be able to fit it in.

                    Sweet! Damn good steaks in CR; one of the best I've ever had. Them cattle are as God intended; grass fed with no hormones or antibiotics etc. Granted it's been a while, but when I was there a steak and langostino dinner, with all the trimmings, was only $4 and beer was a dollar. Some of the nicest people too... Keep the photos commin Steve!

                          I spent a month there one weekend in 1977.
                          I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

                              In five days I’ve only seen two HDs (must have been touristas) and two other cruisers with bags. Lists of small bikes, mostly 125 cc and Honda. Some Yamaha and Suzuki. Headed on a volcano tour and hot springs dinner today after lunch.

                                Day hike to Volcan Arenal with steam rising and even a rainbow. Then hot pools and dinner at “The Springs” where the Kardashians hung out and was a host resort for the Bachelor. Indescribable architecture, cascading hot pools, view of the volcano and the best steak you have ever had!

                                  Woke up to this in the morning. Then went horseback riding to a small dirt road town an hour away and had the best fried chicken I have ever had. Not breaded, just spices. Then to the beach.

                                    Woke up to this today. Then took a fantastic catamaran ride in the Gulf of Papagyo. Included snorkeling, lunch and a sunset cruise. Can you find the hidden melons?

                                      That doesn't suck.
