Easy Riding Central American Roads and Beaches… Costa Rica!


I run like a crazy recently, little bit because I am going to hit a deadline really soon, but also because I just got tired of typical travelling, which is moving from one backpacker location to the other. So I just pass by popular destinations, such as Ometepe Island or surfers paradise San Juan del Sur and enjoy everyday life on the road, just looking at the world that goes by.

The most important revelation of last few days is that instead of admiring beaches from the road I can actually ride them. Don’t ask if it’s legal because here in Central America anything is possible.
