I find I can only stay in the city for so long, especially San Jose, so after acquiring my relevant research permits for the trip, it was time to head out towards the mountainous region that lies half way to the coast. Negotiating the roads of the capital and its surrounding townships at night can be a daunting experience, it’s no holds barred, which is maybe good with my driving 🙂
The Central Highlands and the small town of Turrialba is nestled in the mountains half way between San Jose and the Caribbean. It’s a favourite place of mine, and the little mountain lodge perched high on the mountain above it even more so. Arriving in darkness, above a low cloud, to the twinkling of the stars above and the lights of Turrialba below me, it was time to sample my favourite Costa Rican drink (a Guaro Sour), before laying my head in one of my favourite resting places.
