PURA VIDA! Follow us on our offroad journey through Costa Rica – the land of volcanoes, jungles, and beaches. We explored the country for four weeks, driving a total of three thousand kilometers. We climbed Costa Rica’s highest mountain Cerro Chirripó and explored the jungle of Corcovado. We enjoyed both sunshine and tropical rain on the Caribbean beaches and watched turtle hatchlings crawl towards the Pacific Ocean in Ostional. It was a memorable journey, and we cannot wait to explore again.

  6. The best thing to appreciate you is your cleaning the sea beach which has to be a lesson to all those irresponsible uncivilised tourists to behave like human unlike animals.

  7. Hallo, Lucas. Thoroughly enjoyed your video. Very professional in every way and visually stunning throughout. I have a question: Do you first write your narration in German and then translate it to English? Or do you write everything once just in English? Danke, Lucas.

  8. This is a most outstanding production. Pleased I’m watching. While it’s my first view of your channel, might I ask that you produce one instructing viewers on how you prepped for this amazing adventure? You know…basic stuff like your gear (foul weather) your camera and itinerary. Also, where did you get that Toyota? Was a Land Rover or Jeep available?
