Jacó is only a 4 hour drive from my home
town of Playa Hermosa. But today I took, what I though was a
shortcut to make the trip. I took the Tambor Ferry across the Gulf of
Nicoya to Puntarenas. Not a good idea.
Not only did this shortcut take 3 hour
longer but it cost me $28 in fees. Lesson learned!
In addition, on this adventure I have the
not so unique experience of being shaken down for a bribe by a Costa
Rican Traffic Cop.
