Cycling from Liberia to Tamarindo in Costa Rica

After an extended stay in Liberia, Costa Rica, it was time to start cycling once more. Today, I cycled from Liberia to Tamarindo in Costa Rica.

The bike tour in Costa Rica resumes…

It felt good to be back on the road again, and although the traffic was heavy near Liberia, it died down a few kilometres out.

The road was predominantly flat, which was probably a good thing given that it was extremely hot even by 08.00 in the morning.

The beach at Tamarindo

I arrived at Tamarindo within three and a bit hours of cycling. The town itself is a pure tourist resort, filled with pink skinned Americans – In fact, they were burning so well, they would have given the English a good run for their money.

The hostel I ended up in was 10 dollars a night for a dorm room, but I was the only one in it, and it had air-con to boot.

Its tucked away off the main drag, and is pretty laid back if a bit rough around the edges.

Wonderfully, they also had a kitchen, which I made full use of  !!
