This year’s NW Overland Rally was all about hanging out with our heroes and making future plans.
I don’t think we wanted to like Costa Rica. Despite it being a wonderland of beaches, wildlife, and mountains, we thought it seemed like a tourist trap. We knew people who had spent months of their trip in this small country and we also knew that it was one of the most expensive countries we would encounter. But after getting out of the big city of San Jose and started to really explore the country we couldn’t help but like it.
Due to our ever-changing plans and an unexpected job-offer back home in Oregon, we found ourselves making a lightening run (for us anyway) through the countries of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Since we spent so little time in each of these countries, we decided to do a "favorite things" post that combines all four of them.
