Our 12-Day Road Trip to Costa Rica’s Southern Zone: San Vito

We’ve always wanted to visit San Vito, located just 40 minutes from the Panamanian border in the south of Costa Rica, at 3,268 feet elevation. It was only a 2-hour ride from Sierpe.

Costa Rica Winds (Video)

Summer in Costa Rica brings many things on the Pacific side of the country — blue skies, day after day of no rain (as opposed to the Caribbean side of the country where it rains year-round), tourists, and snow birds. It also brings the wind. Usually a sign of the change over from the rainy season to the …
