Where I stayed
Second annoyance! In order to drive across the boarder you have to get you car sprayed for insects. I went to pay for this car spray and when I was given change Accidental dropped it on the ground. There was a truck driver standing next me who reached down to pick up a coin, I’m assuming he’s helping me, and he stashes my money straight into HIS pocket. Awkwardly, I called him out on it and he gives me the money like nothing even happened. Weird!!
The third hurdle of the day was the line up for passport stamping. It is well know fact that Costa Rican boarders are the busiest in Central America. We unfortunately arrived right after the tourist buses arrived,which turned into a 50-person line-up at passport control. Christina and Could’t understand why the line up wasn’t moving. Well it was because apparently if you are from Costa Rica you can walk to the front of the line. So something that should have taken us 30 minutes ended up taking 3 ½. hours The best part of the boarder was there were no charges.
Basically Christina and I have decided that we are not fans of boarder crossings. The great thing is that it’s still worth it in the end.
