    Hey Brenda, guess I was a little late with the advice since the trip was last year - d'oh!! Anyway, if there is a group going this year that would be sooo cool! Might even be able to talk my Uncle (pink shirt) into going. There are so many beautiful sights to see in CR and the people are so warm and friendly it is a wonderful vacation destination - but the white water rafting is a must!!

    Hey guys, (Mike on the left) been to CR several times and recommend exercise care while on the Caribbean side of the country. Puerto limon is a big cruise destination and hence a draw for "unsavory elements" who prey on tourists. Try to stay west of San Jose. Jaco, Tamarindo, La Fortuna and anywhere in Guanacaste Province (Atlantic NW) are all pretty safe. In San Jose recommend Hotel Santo Tomas - tico owned and operated and a great place to stay!!
    Oh - and don't be afraid to rent a car and do your own thing!! and DO NOT miss the white water rafting!!

    August 4

  • Marge G.

    Brenda, I agree with GayBrielle. I just don't get the feeling that this trip is going to happen and therefore must say that I am no longer interested either. Sorry. It sounded like a nice trip.

    July 27

  • Marge G.

    Brenda, You didn't say you were accepting payment yet. I would have given you a check when I met you at Panera. How much, payee, and where to send?

    July 20

    • Marge G.

      OK. I did not receive the email.

      July 20

    • GayBrielle C.

      I did not receive any emails either. Due to the lack of communication and commitment from additional travelers I am not longer interested. I met at Panera and gave my email and phone number.....I'm just going to book something somewhere else. Best of luck with this trip.

      July 27

  • Saiid

  • Janette K.

    We did have 5 people going last Tuesday, then apparently 2 backed out leaving 3. Villa sleeps 10 in total. Deadline today is 2pm - you need to notify Brenda M if you are seriously interested. If only 3 are going, I do not want the extra expense so I won't be going.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
