Talking about very special trips, two weeks ago two friends and I went out for a day trip into the mountains at the south of San Jose. We had been talking for months about doing that and finally we made the decision. As we would rather traveling light, we packed just some water and cold food and setting off for our trip.
After had driven for almost and hour we got La Lucha, at San Cristobal, Desamparados. We left our car there and started to hike into the forest. The place is actually not remote, however the locals works hard in order to keep it unspoilt.
As I was saying the place were not remote, so we had been able to use our smartphones, the reception, of course, were poorer than in the city, yet the coverage were good enough to have signal most of the time. Otherwise we would felt a bit uncomfortable due to our obsession of been connected so as to send photos to our families and partners on line.
Basically we entered the forest hoping to find something special, for that reason we went off the beaten track and started to look into every promising spot, trying to discover a natural treasure.
