Tempisque ferry... - Tamarindo
Tempisque ferry... Tempisque ferry... Review

Playa Tamarindo is on the península Nicoya and if you reach it by car and you want to avoid the off road, which here means really huge holes and more than bumpy roads, you can reach P.to Moreno to take the Tempisque ferry but around Christmas this doesn't mean less time: a 4 hours queue for a 10 minute ride on the ferry which however isn't so unpleasant... the sun can melt you but very efficient pushcarts sell brusquedas (which can be salted or sweet), drinks, fresh fruit and hielo and it's almost impossible not to make friends with the other people queueing...
They ask you 900 colones for a car with driver and 30 colones each extra person (and when I was there 1US$ was about 380 colones).
But this service will stop when the nearby bridge, which is being built, will be finished...
