Esterillas Este - Northern Puntarenas  Province No. 1 Province No. 2  Province No. 3 Province No. 4       Even after fourteen visits within two years of traveling back and forth from the States to Costa Rica, we still had no idea where we could picture ourselves living long term. For that reason, we chose to rent homes via AirBnB for the first several months in different provinces throughout Costa Rica. We knew that if we could live in a certain area for a month or more, we’d get a feel of what the town had to offer, as...

We ended up staying in Tamarindo for four nights before having to continue on to our final destination for the month in Esterillos Este. We had such a good time together, drinking hotel specials and chili guaro shots, relaxing, not having to worry about border crossings or any of the odd stuff that we did while driving through the numerous countries. Not a worry was on our minds. While we were in Tamarindo, the day before heading to Esterillos, a young lady had called me from San Jose United Cargo. She was very friendly and told me everything that I...
