Travelling around Costa Rica by road can be a challenge. At best it will test your patience and drain your energy. The truth is that the pothole filled, single lane, winding roads are great for adventure but fall well short of what we are used to in North America.
Therefore, we decided to forget about being road warriors when we planned our March trip from Liberia to Quepos, which is further south on the Pacific coast. We booked seats with NatureAir, a well-known, environmentally friendly airline of Costa Rica. A 19 passenger, Canadian-made aircraft known as the Twin Otter, provided an aerial adventure for us, and with stops in Tamarindo and San Jose, we got a bird's eye view of a big chunk of the landscape.
