Pura Vida – La Ruta de los Conquistadores Report from Alex Grant

For that reason I have come to love visiting Costa Rica and look forward to going down to La Ruta de los Conquistadores each year, despite my knowledge of how brutally hard the race is. I know that regardless of how the race goes I will be able to experience the culture and natural beauty of the country and hopefully take a little bit of that home with me when I return to the States. I can’t speak for other countries but it seems like American culture is so focused on growth, doing more, doing it faster, and with less, that people’s lives become a blur of time. It’s refreshing to visit a small town in Costa Rica and see the simple life some people lead.
