We arrive in La Fortuna and pass the ever so important gas station, (This will come into play later). We decided that since this is our first trip here and that for the next 10 days we will be riding 2-up on a very narrow seat that we should take some precautionary measures when ever possible. We needed hot tubs, a/c, food near or on location, hot shower and sometimes cold shower,bar, and comfortable beds, This place rocked.

This place had 28 pools, most fed from the volcano hot spring
Sorry baby, this is your massage tonight
This is where we met Jimmy, our bartender for the evening. Although we didn't get any pictures of him, we did talk about riding motorcycles in Costa Rica. He had a wreck 4 months ago and was still healing up from it. They lack safety gear, but do wear helmets. They can spot a foreigner by the way they are dressed in saftey gear. He really liked our gear, I could tell by the way he eye balled and touched the jackets. He makes his commute everyday from home to work totaling 60k. the roads are dark and wet at night most of the time and the lighting on his ybr 125 is poor, but still loves the rush of riding.
This guy joined us for dinner
He measured almost 2 and half inches long.
Packing up in the morning and carrying our stuff out to the bike I see this little guy working in the morning.
