Welcome to the town of San Ramon, Costa Rica.  Arrived there by car that I rented in San Jose.  Now that was an experience all in itself.  Travel there was exciting and easy to do.  Make sure to fill up your gas tank, sit back and enjoy the ride.  Such an amazing journey and feeling, “magical with nature”.
