The red line is our cycle route and the dotted blue line is our journey by bus to the capital city of San Jose to visit a fellow cyclist. The short ferry ride from the Playa Naranjo to Puntarenas allowed us to cycle through the Nicoya Peninsula which is renowned for its beautiful beaches and slower pace of life. After visiting our friend in San Jose, we continued down the Pacific Coast Highway which passes close to a number of attractive beaches and is largely paved all the way to Palmar Norte where it meets with the the Interamericana and crosses into Panama at Paso Canoas. Costa Rica is famed for its extensive system of National Parks of which we visited Santa Rosa where we camped for our first night, the coastal and marine national park of Manuel Antonio and the mountain rain forest park of Braulio Carrillo close to San Jose.
