Nicaragua - Costa Rica border crossing on the Pacific coast?
I am fascinated by Nicaraguan coastal roads, in particular south of San Juan del Sur to the Costa Rica boarder. In the winter of 2009 I drove down this road in a car, seeking the road along the Nica/Tica border, from the Pacific to Sapoa. At the time I didn't have travel companions with sufficient passion to brave the dirt roads and we turned back after getting to Playa El Naranjo, Nicaragua. Next time I plan to travel alone! And on a motorcycle..
Google Maps shows a "Tourist Border Crossing" icon between Nicaragua and Costa Rica on the Pacific coast. Has anyone crossed at that point, imported a motorcycle, clear immigrations, the works, without a hitch? The worst I can imagine is being turned back and having to making the crossing at Sapoa. I did the crossing at Sapoa (both directions) in winter of 2008-09 on a motorcycle and will do it again if a more fun alternative is not available on the coast.
Here is a link to the border icon:
