It was good to leave the touristy La Fortuna and head on towards more volcanoes but I also had San José in my way. It’s never fun crossing Central American capital cities on a loaded (or unloaded) bicycle and this was no exception. I couldn’t find a nice route around San Jose unfortunately since I wanted to head up Volcán Irazú and Turrialba on the famous Ruta de Las Conquistadores (a fantastic route across the whole of Costa Rica; next post) en route to the Caribbean. This post details my route from La Fortuna to Tres Rios.
I skipped the last few hundred meters of Poas because the weather was cold and wet and took the LONG fast downhill to Alajuela
