Nicoya Peninsula - Rental Car Day O' Fun

The Jimmy - rental car in Nicoya

Tim and "The Jimmy", our truck rental.


Alex, Tim, Mike - friends from the Boston area who are staying in the same condo complex as I am.

This was an amazing little bay.

This poor Pelican was not well; it probably died not long after this shot.

Another one of the bay.

We went snorkeling.

Alex, ready for her first snorkeling experience.

Mike, chilling and working on his sunburn.

We met some locals.

This was a local kid ripping the little surf break out side the bay.

Waterproof cameras are fun.

This doesn't look that pretty but it was, perhaps, the best ceviche I've ever had. I think it cost $4.00.

The little "soda" (restaurant) with the great ceviche.

Cows in a culvert.

Me on another empty beach called Marbella... good surf, gorgeous setting, probably a good place to buy property if you're looking for an investment.

Another view of Marbella.

This picture doesn't do it justice, but this bull was seriously pissed at our rental car. It charged us a couple of times and we were concerned that our $800.00 car insurance deductible was in jeopardy.

Tim and Alex at the end of the day at Lagarta Lodge.


Obviously this was a prime picture spot. Me, working it for the camera

This is the sunset from the sunset bar at Lagarta Lodge. If you're ever in the Nosara area, you have to check this place out; the view is unbelievable.

And what day in Costa Rica would be complete without a few wildlife shots.

It's called a patience bug.
