Road trip driving route in Costa Rica & Panama
We started the month of February outside of Turialba, Costa Rica where we visited the Guyabo archaeological site and the Irazu Volcano. From there we headed over to the Caribbean Coast, stopping at Rainforest Adventures just outside of Baraulio Carilo National Park. Then it was off to Tortuguero National Park, which is only accessible via boat.
Next we were drove down to the Puerto Viejo de Talamanca area to explore Costa Rica’s beautiful Caribbean beaches – Cahuita, Puerto Viejo, Cocoles, Punta Uva, and Manzanillo. We ended the month with yet another border crossing (our 38th so far), this time heading into Panama (country 10 on our Journey) to explore the Bocas del Toro archipelago.
