Sarapiquí Stories

November 17, 2011

Sarapiquí salutes the “Bergalia Boys,” Wade Stubbs and Philip Atkinson. Friends since childhood, the two are fulfilling a lifetime dream of traveling from Alaska to Antarctica. They are calling their 28,000-mile road trip Circle to Circle, and are riding their motorcycles for miles to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The two recently traveled across Mexico and Central America in torrential rains and other severe conditions. When they reached San Miguel de Sarapiquí in northern Costa Rica, they finally had a weather break and saw a sunny day. They stopped to take beautiful pictures of the area and made time to enjoy the Mi Cafecito Coffee Tour. After a day of fun in Sarapiquí and surrounding areas, they continued on their journey of riding to help the foundation. Check out their amazing photos at bergaliaboys.smugmug.com/CircleToCircle.
