Road Trip Through Costa Rica's Mountain Highlands
I just got back from a great road trip, through Costa Rica's mountain highlands. I made a big circle around the country, starting in my home town, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
I drove across Panama, back up into Costa Rica and into the highest mountains in the country. I went horseback riding in the Diamante Valley and saw the second largest waterfall in Central America. I drove the "mountain of death" - Cerro de la Muerte. And I spent a glorious few days in the "Saints Zone" - La Zona de los Santos, where I toured a coffee plantation and learned all about what happens before the cup of coffee gets to your table.
On this trip I saw more magnificent vistas in two weeks than I have seen in the past few years! It was so beautiful! I could go on and on but there is no room here. If you want to know more, I wrote 14 travel journey entries along the way, complete with photos.
