We left San Jose on the 9am bus to Changuinola, Panama. We traveled up into the cloud forest, where it was lush, green and wet, then down towards the border at Sixaola. About an hour before the border, a horrible bang followed by clunking sounds emanated ... Read more >


San Jose, capital

COSTA RICA | Tuesday, 21 Apr 2009 | Views [799]

Nosara, still on the costa

COSTA RICA | Saturday, 18 Apr 2009 | Views [1308]

Leon, Nicaragua

NICARAGUA | Thursday, 2 Apr 2009 | Views [1915] | Comments [1]
