Need Storage in San Jose CR

Currently in Tapachula Mexico by continuing on down to San Jose Costa Rica.

I need a secure place to store my GS1200ADV for about a week while I travel back to the states for a convention.

I plan to return to CR and return to the states.

Dates are November 1st to November 6th.

Closer to the airport would be better, but any suggestions welcome!

Maybe you could take a short ride to the beach and leave it at Jimmys bar at Playa del Coco, you can see it here on the map

it is only a few hours ride from the border.

Jimmy rides bikes and owns the bar, top bloke

Contact in Alajuela

When I traveled through C.R., the owners of the hostel Trotamundo ( hoteltrotamundos@hotmail.com ) had a safe place for my car, which was the locked garage of their own house. It is in Alajuela (same city as airport). They were very fair with the price and I would highly recommend them.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
