My Brother went down there on missionary work and wound up in the Jungle looking up to a rifle bore of a clacker pressed to his forehead.

Nugs, I take it this is your graduation trip? I think this would be a good time to talk to you about the birds and the bees son. You see, down in Mexico, there are killer bees, and birds that will pick your bones clean after being stung to death...
Quakes no what are you talking about Pez?

There have been some pretty decent sized quakes in the desert south of San Diego (100 miles or so) and a few near La Paz not too long ago. I take it you didnt feel them I guess. Good!

I regularly check the USGS earthquake site since I live between fault lines here in SoCal and every once and a while I see one pop up in the Baja area. But lately, they have really been going off. In late February the biggest one hit near Manzanillo with a swarm or quakes. There have also been some near Santa Rosalia earlier this month.

Santa Rosalia looks like a major quake hit last week, a major shiit hole

It was kind of a graduation trip. My family never took vacations, they were always business trips. My mom wanted that to change, and felt this was our last chance. Luckily, I was able to have a trip with my Dad driving across country (including a stop in Canton) 5 years ago before he passed away. Now I can say I've done the same with my mom.

Baja, parts of Costa Rica are expensive. San Jose -- yes! Monteverde was VERY cheap. I'm not sure about lodging costs, but all of the food was very cheap down there.

A few other pics of the area.







That last one was a badass animal. The thing has the body of a weasel, the face of a bear and the tail of a fox. As for the women.....man. First of all, I'm a big fan of both Latina and Asian women. Both were everywhere there. Just absolutely breathtaking. My mom was enjoying the men as well. Last week was holy week, so a lot of people were apparently at the beaches. I'm mostly glad that I didn't go to the beaches for that reason, but part of me is really wishing I would have gone sight seeing.

One meal in Monteverde was a four course meal, fine steaks and everything and it only ran us $30 American for the two of us, and that's with wine as well. Speaking of Monteverde, this is one of the weirder parts of the trip -- apparently they think that Americans eat only Italian food. Since it's such a tourist town, that was ALL they had available....Italian. Every place had a name like "Pizzaria de Johnny".

As I said in the other thread....please go and yell at Amare Stoudemire for me. Thank you.

Ok I'm finally going to check this place out! I'm outta here as of tomorrow. My MANE plan is to visit as many of the natural hot springs Costa Rica has to offer. Going to get the ole pole wet as well.

By the time I get back McD will have probably have sent Champ packing for a 5th round pick.

Be kind to each other! I gotta go tan my mecks.

Have a blast. I spent my honeymoon on the Pacific side. http://www.hotelpuntaislita.com/

It was an adventure just to get there and it kind away from the city. But it was one of the best places we have been.

Right on. I had a car rented but once I dug into things a little more decided to hire a private driver. Less stress, less risk, more beers.

Yeah we were going to rent a car and are glad we didn't. Its crazy over there. Make sure your driver takes you to the local market to stock up on beer. We bought 1 case for the week and saved a ton of money.

Any advice? What should I do (we have a pretty strict itinerary, but I want to know if there's anything I have to do)? What should I avoid?

Most importantly, I'm having Nugs scores sent to me by text message, so I'm covered there.
Should be great...got a buddy who goes down every few months and says the cost of living is ridiculously cheap. I don't care for giant bugs or tropical heat but otherwise it's on my radar along with a few other places down there, including Nicaragua.

You gotta go catch a sailfish IMO. Costa Rica has arguably the best sailfish fishing on the planet.

I've been once but it was 10 yrs ago. I went out of a place called Los Suenos, or something close to that.

Pretty active party scene downtown San Jose complete with legalized prostitution.
