    Costa Rica Itinerary Day 13: An Epic Drive from Montezuma to Samara

    After spending two nights in Montezuma it was again time to hit the road and explore some more of Costa Rica. Today we'd drive from Montezuma to Samara, another beach town approximately 80km northwest of Montezuma. Our Google map wanted to take us on an inland route from Montezuma to Samara but we wanted to see the coast so we headed south to travel the coastal route which is pretty much a one-lane dirt road following the Pacific Coast edge of the Nicoya Peninsula.

    Costa Rica Itinerary -Day 10 Manuel Antonio to Carmona District

    After having relaxed and enjoyed Manuel Antonio for almost two days, on the 10th morning of our Costa Rica exploratory trip we were ready to continue our journey. Today we would be heading to Carmona on the Nicoya Peninsula. Chances are you’ve never heard of Carmona. It’s situated on the east side of the Nicoya Peninsula above the Gulf of Nicoya. Carmona District as it’s officially known is listed as having a population of about 2700, which I’m sure has grown significantly in the last few years.

    Costa Rica Itinerary Day 6: The Osa Peninsula: Sierpe

    After our walk, we headed out for a drive to explore the Osa Peninsula. We drove to Ciudad Cortes which was a surprisingly large town, but not all that interesting. After that, we drove to Sierpe. Sierpe is one of the jumping-off points for Corcovado tours. If we had had time we certainly would have taken a tour to Corcovado National Park the "Crown Jewel" of Costa Rica's national parks!
