We rode out from town, first downhill and then on rolling terrain, and even with an early start it was already quite hot!
When we reached the point where traffic and road conditions would become an issue, we loaded up the vehicle and headed off for a long drive across eastern Costa Rica. We stopped just outside the Caribbean port town of Limon and hit the road on two wheels again for the ride along the coast into Cahuita, our stop for the night. The east coast of Costa Rica was like being in Jamaica, right down to the reggae music!
