We didn’t make it as far as we thought.

Well, we didn’t make it as far as we hoped. We made it to the sand castle festival in Manzanillo (that’s a different story) and tried to head up to Coyote (because someone mentioned it as a close town we could get to). We followed the “maps” and we were going the way that we thought and we eventually hit a stream that was a good 30 meters across and we probably could have crossed it, except that they was no road on the other side of the stream (the photos are of the stream)! So we tried a few other roads but no mater what roads we headed north-ish on, we couldn’t get much father. So we back tracked to Santa Teresa and grabbed the first hotel with A/C and crashed there for the night

Img 8090Later, we did find out that the stream was the correct way to go. But I’m not sure our little 4×4 would have made it (I think so) but we didn’t even know which way to go.

We did get to catch a sunset here, Montezuma is on the other side of the peninsula so that’s the first on this trip. It was really nice even thought there was cloud cover over parts of it.

Today we’re going to head back north, but the very very long way around. So we probably won’t get near Coyote (we’ll end up way north of it) and see what’s way north of it.

Later: I did find out that was the correct way. But I’m still not sure if it would have been east or west. And you’re supposed to do it at low tide. Maybe next time.

    Wow… quite an adventure that travel… I made it about 1 1/2 year ago.

    We went from Montezuma to Nicoya, and we had to pass three rivers, that was the first one of them.

    We weren’t sure of the way across the river, but a few minutes after we got there, another car came and passed, then we just followed it.

    In one of the rivers (not sure if was that one), the road on the other side wasn’t visible, only after the other car passed we could see it :P

    Maybe next time you have better luck and can pass it.

    Cheers!

    Here’s a video of someone crossing, but the water level was much lower.

    We hadn’t been getting a lot of rain that I recall.
