Surfed fun head high waves in Esterillos this morning. No(w) to surf without fear of death.
Sitting this one out
It's so heavy the condo shakes when it hits.
Man that is not bad at all compared to before. I have done two trips flying in to Liberia in recent years b/c it seemed more convenient. My next trip down (18') I'm gonna do the Hermosa-Pavones tract. thx
that looks awesome
Amazing that the road is that good now. Awesome photos too. Makes me want to go back down to Dominical and points south. Thanks!
Sounds like a great trip! the water looks beautiful!
Pump thanks for the updates and pics! I'm stoked to hear lol sounds and looks like you got it good down there! And I think your right, that name sounds about right! (My Bad memory..)
I can't believe that the new road only takes 1.5 hrs to the beach! That's crazy!
Thx for the offer, as of now looking at areas south of Tamarindo. Did some research on areas North and South of Jaco and is still in the running though.
I'll get back with more questions as I get further through this thing. Maybe start my own thread after I score too.
Nice pics! I gotta get down there at some point! $500 for an SUV isn't so bad. If I go, I'll probably have my two best friends with me. We'll split the cost of the rental car, as well as the accommodation's.
I've had a place in Jaco for over 15 years. I use it as a base camp to travel to Pavones, Dominical, and recently Santa Teresa for many years. This is a cool spot in Santa Teresa/Mal Pias:
Heading to Playa Guiones for 5 weeks this summer. Need any advice PM me...I got all the hook ups in my second homeland.
Pura Vida mi amigo!
Hermosa to Mal Pias is not a day trip correct?
We leave Jaco in the morning, catch the ferry in punterenas...about a 60 minutes drive from jaco. Ferry runs on a schedule at different times and takes about 90 minutes. Chillin and relaxing ride. Once off the ferry its another 1 1/2 hour drive on so so roads. If you leave at sunrise you can be in Santa Teresa by noon. Great trip for a few days. Great waves all along that side of the country and WAY less ass beating than Hermosa....
There is also a boat taxi from jaco that takes about an hour. You can take a few boards on the taxi. Santa Teresa is a two day trip at minimum...you will want to stay longer. They have something for everyone...cheap hostels, high class places, great sodas, you name it...
sweet. def doesnt look as heavy as hermosa.
thx pump for the news. not getting down there til nov but so glad to hear it's 1.5 hrs to Jaco from airport. I got assigned rental car duties already, i assume that's phishy, so good to know to talk thru the airlines to see what they can offer. and sweet pics man
disclosure--the 1.5 was in light traffic. Depending on your arrival, traffic could be much worse. If you use Alamo, National (what i used) or Enterprise, you go to their respective counter straight out of Customs and they will take you to a van which takes you to the pick up facility a few miles away. You can also get an 'easy pass' that makes the tolls much better (i would request this when you reserve).
My friends at Zuma will pick you up at the airport FREE in your rental car. You just have to drop the driver, Carlos or Mario, back off at their office in Jaco. If you are staying near Jaco check them out for sure. The price you see on their website INCLUDES the mandatory insurance the CR government requires.
If you are going to be near Jaco, check them out.
I have a buddy who did this. He liked it.
Talk to Warren at Zuma...he's the manager. Tell him Jon from Costa Linda sent you.......
