We will meet at Hoppy's Place in Santa Ana. This is one of my favorite restaurants, and local brewery. In here we will be able to purchase beers or any other beverage to take up to our experience, from the bar or a convenience store next to it. We will drive up the mountain in a very steep road, about a 15 minute drive all the way to the top. On our way up, we will chat about Costa Rica and a variety of topics around the topic. Up in the top of the mountains, there are wind turbines that we can see from close, which make an important part of the 100% renewable energy sourced country we are. The best part of the experience is to sit back in outdoor chairs provided, and see an amazing sight of mountains all the way to the horizon. This can be done in the late afternoon to see an unforgettable sunset. We will have a cooler for your beverages, and will have time there to walk, drink, relax and enjoy. Optionally, after dark, we can walk to other side of the mountains and get a glimpse of alll the metropolitan area city lights. I assure it is breathtaking. After our experience, we go back to Hoppy's Place and you can optionally stay there to wrap up with amazing food and drinks.
