Anyone heading to Costa Rica/ Panama this fall?

A couple of us from Vail are going down to Costa Rica on Oct 16. Plan on a few days in Turrialba and then heading to Boquette in Panama for a couple of weeks.
Looking to find some paddlers to hook up with to share shuttle costs or even a rental truck.

Any other groups going to be there that time (Oct 16-Nov 6)????

Thanks guys!

Brook, thanks, I just talked with Andy.

Nate, get in touch in Nov & I'll give you any beta I have. I've been to CR several times for kayaking & surfing so I should be able to point you in the right direction. You can get by e-mail or at the shop.


Thanks again!!

Wow,

Quite a deal on tickets to Costa Rica.... Can you provide a little more information as to how I might be able to find that rate? Pretty Please.

I have been living in CR for about a year and would like to hook up and boat. Panama is definately a spot i'd like to check out...
I have not smuggled my creek boat down here yet, but I will rent one if my Kingpin is not an option. I forgot the name, but I know there is a run with like 13 miles of solid class 4 (beautiful too, of course) about an hour or so after you cross the CR border into Panama.
Got the surf bug when I got here and have not been able to put my board away...kind of sad considering all the prime rivers here. Some sweet, new runs with a crew from Colorado is the kick in the ass I need to pull me away from the ocean.
I could break away for maybe a week or a little more in mid Oct from construction here in San Jose. I have a 4x4, but my racks broke a while back.
Rio Naranjo in Manuel Antonio is a run I have not hit and is on the way down to Panama. Class 3-4, but should be solid 4 in mid Oct. (upper stretch is 5, but is only good to go after the wet season)
Anyway, I am always looking for someone to boat/surf with....I just wish I had more time on my hands to do more exploring!
It has been raining pretty hard and the rivers are full...problem is, the SSW swells have been rolling in on a weekly basis and that is super hard to resist for some reason!
(I would really like to check out Rio Chiripo..anyone done it, I hear it is fairly EPIC)
Hasta pronto y PURA VIDA

Panama

Great Ian!

I hear the rivers in Panama are already going off. All the stuff we are planning on doing is within a few hours of the border and we are bringing kingpins as well.

Check your e-mail!!
