Had a surf trip not go through, my wife is gone to Canada for all of June, and I have nothing to do. So, I have decided to drive a vehicle that I still have in Canada down to Costa Rica in the last 2 weeks of June.
I am looking at stopping for a little surf on the way down and also to maybe see some of the historic sites. I am doing the Pacific coast route (not the Baja but the mainland) of Mexico, into Guatamala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, then CR. I know of a couple places to check out but they are the usual well known tourist traps.
Any places or things that you know of that are worthy of a stop, please let me know. I will be alone so I don't want to hit any surf that is too crazy, as if I disappear no one will be there to know. I also don't mind heading off the route to see something cool, but not too far as I can't lose too much time.
I am still in the planning stage so any help would be highly appreciated.
