Many times during Costa Rica’s rainy season, I will say to people, “I know that road, and I would not drive it at night.”     When one veers way off the beaten path, a harmless mud hole might turn into a monster that all but swallows a vehicle.

Roads wash away; landslides block mountain passages.  Shallow streams can suddenly swell to demonic rivers.

Unmarked muddy roads in the night might lead to a dead end if one takes the wrong turn.  When in doubt, be smart!

Please send your best “Why I Don’t Drive at Night” photos!  Thanks, Z
