La Pura Vida. I thought this was just a gringo phrase, to be printed on walls of airports, bar napkins, and cheap t-shirts. But it turns out locals really do say this every day! And after three days riding Costa Rica, I can see why.

With an itinerary of a quick three day trip to the small Central American oasis, I gave movie maker Logan Nelson a call, as well as photographer Eric Mickelson. We headed down to the tropics right in the middle of the rainy season, and therefore, with zero expectations. And what we discovered was amazing- a truly robust enduro community!
