San Jose to Playa Negra



After a delicious Costa Rican inspired breakfast, we hit the road, saying goodbye to San Jose & our cool little B&B.  I completely fell in love with the butter here, which was cultured, yellow, and rich with flavor, it went so well with avocado on toast next to some papaya.  Mmmmm.  We got directions from our B&B proprietor and took to the road to check out the countryside for ourselves.  The streets were remarkably well maintained in all honesty, going from San Jose and heading west.  We were told to avoid the northern routes as they went through the mountains and opted to head direct west, many toll roads later we happened on the coast, our first view from the ground of the beautiful Costa Rican Pacific!
