Living the dream and the Pura Vida in Tropical Ticoland Part 2- Over the river of crocodiles to Jaco

Thursday morning, we all get into Vanessa’s Hyundai Galloper and take a two-hour drive from San Jose to the hedonistic beach resort town of Jaco on the Pacific Coast. The trip takes us on winding mountain road through the jungle and over a river of crocodiles. We spend a night at an all-inclusive resort on the beach and experience the nightlife it had to offer….

Heading out of San Jose on a wet, tropical morning…..

Vanessa at the wheel…..

Ticos reading the morning papers….

Photobucket
First stop is McDonalds because I hadn’t eaten the previous night before going to bed and needed something quick for the road….. I like the McPinto.

Photobucket
Meanwhile,…. street juice vendors converse outside…

Photobucket
On the road again and into the rainy jungle….

Photobucket
miles and miles of melz….

Photobucket
Passing by little towns along the way…..

Photobucket
We pass over a bridge with croccodiles below, so we stop and walk back towards it….. passing cows or something….

Photobucket
Wow,…. looking below….. into the muddy river…..

Photobucket
What is more amazing? ….My hair or the crodiles below. You be the judge.

Photobucket
This is a phase in my life called “Ticas and Crocs”.

Photobucket
Me and Van Lieu both agreed that we had never seen crocodiles in the wild….

Photobucket
There are about 11 of them….

Photobucket
Fuckin’ crocodiles indeed……

Photobucket
That’s amazing. Where are we?

Photobucket
Like a bridge over troubled waters…..

Photobucket
Goodbye, Crocs….. I love you so much….

Photobucket
As we get closer to Jaco beach, Vanessa stops by a piece of land she owns just off the main road and me and her go out to check it out……. her little plot overlooks this small river…

Photobucket
It seemed like we parked in someones front yard and whover lived there didn’t mind….

Photobucket
Shirtless Tico.

Photobucket
We arrive at Jaco Beach,…… and Buckmaster and Van Lieu try the waters…..

Photobucket
Coconut ball………

Photobucket

Photobucket
The rains come in heavily now, but it doesn’t deter these two.

Photobucket
Meanwhile, Me and Reyann hide away from la juvia……

Photobucket
After watching some TV…..

Photobucket
….And looking at van Lieu’s Bug bite……,….

Photobucket
…we all head to the bar by the beach to get free drinks until 11pm (part of the all-inclusive deal).

Photobucket
The bar played nothing but reggae, salsa, and bachata….. my kind of scene…..

Photobucket
Hello, Esteban….

Photobucket
Hello Pablo.

Photobucket
Hello Cuddy and Reyann.

Photobucket
Hello Ticas.

Photobucket

Meanwhile,…. the gecko on the wall watches us all….

Photobucket
Then,…. we go out on the town….

Photobucket
The first place we go plays salsa and reggaeton… and it’s filled with hookers….


Doug El Gigante is being a piece as always….


Con Sabor!

Photobucket
…then some girls from the last bar lead us to a party by the beach…..

Photobucket
which is crackin’ and filled with travelers from all over the world……..

Photobucket
The morning after……. where are my panties?….. and what is this man doing in that tree?

Photobucket
