Letters from the trail: Hiking the Camino de Costa Rica (Part 3)
Garry Wallace recently completed the Camino de Costa Rica, and he wrote a series of stories recounting the experience.
Below is Part 3:
A Taste of Costa Rica: Gastronomy on El Camino
You would be forgiven to think our little group ate simple carbohydrate-laden foods, and lots of them, given the calories we were burning each day. But nothing could be further from the truth. We ate like kings and queens.

No one — vegan, carnivores or omnivores — went hungry on this trip!
Stay tuned for Part 4 tomorrow!
