Costa Rica to Panama: Cahuita, Puerto Viejo, Almirante, Bocas del Toro

Jan 19th 2015 — Biking — 7:37 pm

We started the day in the mountain town of La Fortuna we ended up on the Caribbean coast in Cahuita thanks to a bus and 100k of riding.

Cahuita was a quant little town, and after spending a night there and taking a stroll in the nearby national park we decided to spend new years eve in the nearby town of Puerto Viejo.

After one action-packed night in Puerto Viejo that seemed like two in my memory due to how action-packed it was, we hit the road again, bumbled our way across the border into Panama, spent a night in the port town of Almirante and then grabbed a boat to the resort destination of Bocas del Toro.

Costa Rica: Liberia, Upala, San Rafael de Gustavo, La Fortuna

Jan 18th 2015 — Biking — 1:14 pm

We left the Pacific Ocean at Coco and biked to Liberia and hopped on a bus to Upala, near the border of Nicaragua. We had been told that Rio Celeste was a very blue river worth checking out and Joseph had been talking about wanting to go to La Fortuna for a long time.

After swimming in a hot river we discovered that La Fortuna is a very popular city with white people. Ziplines and mini-golf are mandatory. We promptly left.

Costa Rica: Playa Carrillo, Samara, Tamarindo, Coco

Jan 16th 2015 — Biking — 8:35 am

We spent the greater part of a day trying to follow the coast from Samara. Our lovely dirt road turned into a rather hellish mixture of a much rougher dirt road combined with lots of traffic.

Dust was everywhere.

I could not imagine what it would be like to live there. We hightailed it out on a bus to Nicoya to meet up with our old friend, pavement.

El Capitan – East Ledges Descent

Oct 27th 2014 — Climbing,Yosemite — 8:38 am

The East Ledges descent is the quickest way to get down off the top of El Cap.

We were sitting under the rainfly on the summit trying to wait out the rain, and decided we were just going to get colder if we didn’t start moving.
