In March of 2016 we took the ride with Ride Costa Rica from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio (booked through AnywhereCostaRica). We thought it was going to be an uneventful shuttle ride, but it turned out to anything but,
Our driver, Minor, seems to take his job seriously. He even has a large laminated Costa Rica map which he rolled into a tube in the van. This he used to give us a presentation of Costa Rica's geography and our route. He made frequent stops to show us the scenery and interesting natural phenomena -- we had views of the mountains of both sides of the Continental Divide, some flowering trees and a cashew nut tree with fruits. Then we made a long stop at Rio Tarcoles where we walked across the bridge to see the many huge crocodiles in the river. Minor even has a scope for riders to view the crocs, so he is more like a guide and driver.
Needless to say, the ride took a little longer but we did not mind at all, it was made all the more interesting with these stops and presentations.
