Great trip report Jeroen! Really enjoyed the read, looks like a fantastic trip with a huge species list.
I'd love to do something like this some day, I just have to get over my dislike of driving in other countries!

Thanks, Jim! Driving in Costa Rica was (by my standards) not too much of a challenge, so go for it! ;)

Just wowsers! Damn nice species list! It's a dream country for sure, no matter how popular it has gotten among ecotravelers.

Fantastic report Jeroen, we've been there too this year two week prior to you (for 2 weeks). Report one the way - a lot reminds me...
