From the first bus excursion we took in Costa Rica it seems that this friendly driver has always had our back. Even though he speaks absolutely no English he guided us to the right spot to get our bus home the first time we went into Alajuela. Because he drives for the company that runs the route we take most frequently - Turrucares-La Garita-Alajuela - we ride his bus about 3-4 times a week. Even when we are not on his bus we have heard him tell other drivers "plaza de futbol, La Garita" (that's our stop) and then point to us, making sure they knew where we wanted off.
He is always in a good mood it seems, smiling, singing and waving or honking the horn at people along the way. We just had to get a picture of him before we leave in two weeks and although he was leaving the stop when Rob asked for a picture, he just smiled and obliged. If there was a prize for best bus driver, he would get our vote!!!
