Day 90, Sep, 30, 2013, 159km
After 2 hrs at the border we finally crossed into Costa Rica, which is not bad considering the stories we have heard.
Wei was able to find another great detailed border crossing report that you can find on this link: http://heyivegotanidea.wordpress.com/nicaragua-costa-rica/
I'll need to backtrack a little on this following story so that you have some background info. When we crossed the border from Mexico into Belize a couple of days back we did meet Dan and Nancy from Wisconsin riding on a Harley with a trailer attached, as usual we chatted a bit and shared experiences from border crossings, and which roads was best to ride. We also fond out that he was now living in Playa del Coco, Costa Rica. Dan asked if we were heading that way to come down to the CocoNutz Sports Bar and Eatery in town because he is the owner of this place and we could hang out a bit.
So yesterday we finally headed to Playa del Coco and was greeted by Dan and Nancy with a heartfelt welcome. After some catching up of how thing did go for them and us, Dan asked what we were planning to do, and I said we just need to crash somewhere and was wondering about local places, without a blink of an eye Dan invites us to stay at there place and WOW what a great place this is. After swimming in the pool we had beer with pizza and some great company to share it with. Dan and Nancy are some of the nicest people that you could ever meet and I feel blessed to have encounter them. Dan is an ex-vet and was declared dead 7 times and through some miracle he came back every time, according to Dan this was because his destiny was not yet fulfilled, I think he's right.
