Dia Quatro - Tomamos un viaje el Tamarindo en Peninsula De Nicoya.

Yet another bridge this time crossing the upper Golfo De Nicoya! This bridge is called The Tiawan Friendship Bridge because it was built by the Tiawanese as a wonderful gifto the Costa Ricans. Jere tells us the true reason they gave the bridge to the Costa Ricans was because they wanted to fish their off shore waters for shark. Unfortunately, they only wanted to cut off the fins and throw the sharks back into the sea. The Costa Ricans said "no way, thanks for the bridge!" Posted by Picasa

This bridge looks a little more safe then the other.
