February 2, 2024 Comments Off

When I’m rushing from the Paquera Ferry to reach my destination at Tango Mar or another place, I generally don’t pay much attention to what’s next to the road. In part it is good, because the path winds quite a bit and one has to concentrate. However, it is also a shame, because I have

January 9, 2024 Comments Off

Tango Mar is located at an ideal distance from Nicoya’s famous solitary tree to visit on a horseback ride. A little trip that I didn’t want to miss. But…on horseback…hmmm. When I arrived at the stables there were already other people for the ride – they too hadn’t ridden in a long time. Cornelio, the guide, showed each of us a horse. In my case, it was
