We walked down the north embankment once. it was spooky as crap. We saw a bunch of cows go to the water's edge, on the other side, while one stood on to. As they were drinking we saw a bunch of Vs moving towards them in the water. When the hilltop cow saw them, it bellowed and the others fled to high ground. Fuggin cows are smart. One night we were at a friends house on Krypt road in Jaco. I was going to fetch a mango and pcked a bad one. I threw it across the street and I muyst have hit a cow because there was a scream. Next morning when we went for a surf, the cows were pacing the fence giving stinkeye.

I'm getting emails from spirit, jet blue and American. They will take my money with no risks to them.

"At that time, the country will allow flights from countries that have controlled the spread of the coronavirus." Not looking good for us yanks. https://ticotimes.net/2020/06/26/costa-rica-will-open-its-borders-to-tourists-on-august-1

Hope we have a banner hurricane season. Nobody is going to allow travelers from US, certainly not from Florida. Canadian friends are pushing their government to keep borders closed. Cant blame them, we just don't seem to get it!!!! We are the absolute laughing stock of the world right now!!!

People in countries with universal health care seem to have a better sense that they are all in this fight together. I'm hoping for some good summer swells like always but it's that waiting game we all know too well. That mid summer trip to Costa Rica for a three sessions a day for five or six days really leveled it out. Jonesing now.

I went to Costa Rica last year at this time. First trip I ever took by myself. Rather enjoyed it. Much more relaxing and I got more surfing in than i would if I travelled with someone. Pura Vida!

Yup, since there is nothing else to do... Spent the 4th of July in CR last year as well. Went to the new Oxygen Mall with family. Went to Rio Celeste and stayed in the most rustic cabina in the Mountains Caught Grande good. Caught Negra Good with 5 guys out. Caught Marbella good with a few guys out. Then topped it off by going to the Osa Peninsula to surf Pan Dulce, Matapalo and backwash while staying in the most epic ecocabina on the planet. My son got his first real wave. He paddled in and finished 300yds down stream. Look for the cabina on YouTube. "Pieza Paraiso" (piece of paradise in Italian) This year??? drink cheap beer in the backyard.

Sounds like a great trip Tingo! I'm helping surfers plan their Thanskgiving and Christmas vacations now in the hopes the border will be open by then. It is sure to be a popular destination.

I loved going alone. Didn't have to worry about the li'l wife alone on a thin strip of land in front of jungle, nor stupid gringos trying to prove how crazy they are.

I go alone 3-4 times a year for quick three days of surfing. I usually will take a date or friend once every few years and zipline, horseback ride, hit springs, volcano, etc. Went early March this year from the 5th to 9th right before stuff got serious. Wouldn't want to fly right now anyways but hopefully by November I will be able to get another trip in.

The last time in CR, I had a house given to me, and a drug lord had the foundation down of a technical school a drug lord was building me in Santa Terresa. 30 days after i GOT HOME, God gave me my business, and I was doing my thing. To top it off, He sent the estranged son in law to visit my daughter, and my grandson was born on my wife's birthday. HE doth work in mysterious ways.
