ferry to nicoya peninsulacosta rica 2012_31.JPG
These shots were taken between Puntarenas and Montezuma, at the dock, and during the ferry ride across. The ticket for the 70 minute trip to the Nicoya Peninsula from the mainland cost $1.50. It became clear that the residents living on the peninsula must go to Puntarenas for hospital care, as many passengers were obviously on their way home after being treated for injuries - at least 10 on the ship. It was a beautiful sail with lots of pelicans following the ship the entire way. Once across, it took another 30 minutes to get to Montezuma by bus, which cost another $1. (Photo by Sally Rice)
