Liberia Costa Rica To Nicaragua Border (Penas Blancas)

After waking up early in Liberia Costa Rica we walked to the bus station and caught the first bus to the Costa Rica-Nicaragua border. It cost a few dollars per person which isn't bad but the bus was packed. The public bus does stop along the way to drop off and pick up passengers so it can take a little longer than taking private transportation. I prefer taking public transportation as I enjoy the interaction with the local people and is well worth the extra time. The long line of trucks is for inspections that I hear can take around 18 hours to get through the border. Our bus driver ended up going around the line but a few times during this section we ended up playing chicken with the oncoming traffic. If you have any questions regarding the getting to the Nicaragua border feel free to contact me.
