For those mono lingual amongst us who get to go to paradise in the rainy season, make sure you know what derrumbes en la carretera means. you'll see it a lot and you'll be surprized when you see your first one, especially on the road from SJO to the beach.

Es un hueco grande a infierno.
It's a landslide or cave in depending. this time of year it's when rain washes away the dirt from under the outside lanes normally in mountainous area.

gotta love that universal 35km speed limit and when it says warning landslides, they dont necessarily mean above you.

I'd find a delivery truck to get behind as a buffer and an early warning system.

the roads aren't as bad as they used to be between SJO and Jaco. Where are you referring to Senor Chicarrone?

You gotta appreciate a country that thinks they can solve drainage probles by having hundreds of PVC pipe come out of a wall of cement 100ft high (new highway from SJO to Jaco). Of course if it was the US, we would just blow the frickin mountain up...that's why I love the Pura Vida country, don't disturb the surrounding earth! Besides, it improves your driving skills when having to avoid falling mountain sides and boulders the size of trucks as well as vacas, caballos, gatos, perros, hombres y mujeres en bicicletas. Can't wait to head back in June for some gallo y pinto and muchas cervezas Imperials!!! Hasta luego mi hermanos!!!

Heading down there for my first trip over labor day. You guys make it sound like an adventure just getting to the coast from SJ. Been looking at cams for Hermosa etc. and am getting pretty psyched.
