Our final destination in the Gulfo De Nicoya was to be Puntarenas. This is the location to refuel, re-provision, live it up, and check out of Costa Rica for a planned voyage to Panama. But, we decided to make a few more stops in the gulf first. After leaving our mark in Bahia Ballena with Carrie’s ceviche we quickly and quietly departed for Isla San Lucas. Actually, we asked a few other boats to join us but they declined. Hummmm……. Then on to Playa Naranja, then finally Puntarenas.
Left: Isla San Lucas is another very pretty little bay and home to a now closed prison. There are only a few caretakers left. The entrance to the prison is this pier. Terra Firma is anchored up in the far right corner of this picture. So you ask: Incarcerated on a beautiful tropical island. Sounds kinda nice to me. How do I sign up. Well, not all is as it appears! We behaved ourselves while there.
