We got picked up by Emanuel Guzman in the Turismo.  This sticker tells the police you are tourists spending money, paying for a Costa Rican to guide you.  On the drive back from the beach there was a police roadblock and while approaching Emanuel says, “Uh oh, They are going to search us and there's nothing I can do to stop them.”  We drove right by them.  “They would never pull over a turismo car.” He said while laughing.  Slash immediately requested to stop so he could finish the shit that he almost dropped in his pants.

The Ramada hotel down there is also owned by Active so we were in plush accommodations

Imperial is the beer of Costa Rica.  It's pretty light and sweet so you can drink a lot of it throughout the course of a day
