100 kilometers on an ATV

Written By: Gary on December 2, 2007 3 Comments

Sunday, I rented a 4-wheeled ATV and drove it all around the southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula. It was a great day. I was pretty dusty and dirty by the end of the day.

I went to all the towns on the map (not Cabo Blanco, which is a nature preserve).

The beaches were beatiful by Santa Teresa but otherwise I’m not sure what everyone is raving about. Maybe I missed something? But it didn’t even seem like there was much on (or by) the beach. And it seemed a little far from the ‘town”. I was a little rushed but still, I had high hopes…I’m at an Internet Cafe, which I didn’t realize would be so fast or I’d have brought pictures to post. These guys have satellite, I don’t undertand how the competition stays in business, or why these guys don’t charge a little more…

    That sounds like so much fun! Do the native people drive ATVs around, or is it more of a tourist thing?

    For a lot of them (locals or transplanted people) it’s their only vehicle, I saw a guy and 3 kids on one at one time.

    If you need to get around farther you bus it (or rent a 4 wheel drive if you can afford it).

    Some of the roads would have been tricky even in in a big truck, there were some pretty big streams going through the roads. You would not have driven your car through these streams, maybe not even your truck.

    Santa Teresa, Costa Rica (yuk!)

    So Santa Teresa is supposed to be this beautiful place in Costa Rica (I’m referring to the town in the southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula) and while the beaches are beautiful (it is just sand on the ocean) so are a million other areas along the coast…
