We found our base from space!

It may be hard to believe that it's possible to find our CRROBS base on Google Earth, given that we are in the middle of the rain forest covered by trees, but we did it. This is proof to the world that we do, in fact, exist.

For those of you who have not been to Costa Rica, it is not as easy as you may think to find places on a map. For example, here's our official base address:

San Ramon de Tres Rios, de la ultima parada del autobus (the last bus stop of the San Ramon de Tres Rios bus)
350 metros subiendo la calle al Pizote (350 m up the street on your way to The Pizote Bar)
Mano derecha, porton negro con rosado (right hand side, black and red gate)

Yes, that's right. You did not mis-read that address. There are not many street names, nor are there numbers. "Official addresses" include landmarks, bus stops, and meter measurements from those places.

So in conclusion, this search took some effort, but we found it... for you.
