Pacific road trip

The terrible weather conditions in the Caribbean lowlands have drastically escalated,  so we decided it was time for our road trip to the Pacific Coast – while we could still make it! The 8-9 hour drive from the Caribbean lowlands to Coco, a small but very cool beach town on the North-West Pacific Coast, proved very eventful. We literally only just got through the Braulio National Park before it was closed behind us due to landslides. I have to say that I have never driven through weather conditions like it, talk about white knuckle driving, it was very difficult even keeping the car on the road at some points. However, as soon as we got over the highlands to the Pacific side the weather started to change and we arrived into Coco, tired, but to a most beautiful  sunset – before freshening up and heading out for a well needed beer or three 🙂  Internet connection is difficult,  but I will upload more clips recently taken over this side of Costa Rica on the Live Section as soon as possible.
