Cabina crazy

The cabina is finished, and ready to be enjoyed. I will be making information available to enable people to reside there on their vacation to Costa Rica, and will give more information when the plans “gel”. Suffice it to say, that my friends will be allowed to use the place at a VERY affordable rate, and their every need will be attended to!

6 weeks in Costa Rica is not enough!

Arrived back about March 11th. Had to take some time to reconnect with life here. Different pace, different life, for sure. Had a blast down south doing exactly what I wanted….when I wanted. Fishing, hiking, walking, swimming…..

Went deep sea fishing for the first time ever…..caught a sailfish and saw lots of them. Turtles, dorado, lots to see. Went out on the “Rosa Lu” from Herradura near Jaco. 25 miles out to the Peruvian current where there were tons of fish.

Walked miles and miles when Mo was visiting…..

Drove all over the place, to the coast, to Nicaragua, to the volcanos in the north. Everywhere.

Went fishing for bass almost every day in Lake Arenal. Caught some “machata” fish…. Saw my first snake in the wild….long and black with green markings. Like a ribbon on the trail ahead of me.

Found the place for me in Tronadora, near Lake Arenal. Good village, clean, neat, interesting….lots of places to eat, sights to see, and close to Tilaran…..a small town about 5 minutes away on the flank of the mountains where the Guanacaste begins.

Took some pics, will post a few at a time on here.

Experienced a national election wherein they elected the first woman President…..

All in all a neat time away.


…and it was rainy in Tronadora, so I got in the car and drove to the Nicaraguan border. Once there, there was a HUGE lineup of trucks with the drivers sitting underneath in the shade. Drove on the wrong side of the road until I could go no further, and the gate was closed! Apparently they close Nicaragua from noon til one each day! Went to the nearest beach, and the border is located at the end on the right. Turned about and went home.

Friday, lightly raining.

………had a great visit with Mo, and now back on my own. Walking about Tilaran taking pics as it is lightly raining in Tronadora. (always sunny in Tilaran…..6 km away).
THIS COUNTRY IS AWESOME!!!! Went to Playa Samara a few days ago and walked the beach…..nice place, relatively undeveloped coastal area. HOT! ( near 100F)….
