The unfortunate reality of traveling is that it’s impossible to see everything. After finishing a month and a half in Nicaragua my dad and I elected to move quickly through Costa Rica and Panama. We arranged for container shipping from Colon, Panama to Caragena, Colombia in two weeks and hit the road south from Nicaragua. It meant forgoing a lot of amazing spots to visit, but I felt that I had had my fill of Central America. I was excited to get into South America, and back into the mountains. We did however have a chance to visit a few beautiful spots on the way down. One of those was Uvita, Costa Rica. It’s a small town that caters to tourism, but has remained relatively undiscovered. Thus it has kept it’s very authentic Costa Rican vibe. The rainforest here is green and lush and Playa Uvita is spectacularly beautiful. We went for a bike ride out to the the oddly T shaped point and enjoyed a spectacular sunset.
