Going to Costa Rica!!! Need helpful hints...
    #2704756 - 05/20/04 10:00 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ok, i just read mjshroomers post about the Arenal Volcano, and wait, you might not know what i am talking about.

I am leaving in june for two weeks in costa rica. Just me, my girl, our cameras and a jeep.

I would like to go find some mushrooms, seeing that i can not find any in north texas i will just leave the country to find some!

Sorry i am so excited i have wanted to go on this trip for a year and a good payday just came through.

Any suggestions or locations would be helpful.

thanks
N

In similar places, it helps quite a bit to carry a sum of money for "access" to private property by indigenous landowners- so far as costa rica goes- there are probably some cattle owners with very little money who don't give a fuck after a few bucks to let you do whatever you please. Be respectful and intelligent. I'd stick to cubes like MJ said for sure- it's a far away land with a lot of new mushroom look alikes and unexplored variabilities. You can't find mushrooms in N. Texas BTW?! Good luck- the smoke is killer there! Save money for that as well.

Oh and I may be mistaken- and don't hold a fool like me to it, but I think there are coffee plantations or something in Costa Rica where p.carulescens (way misp!) grow or other plantations on hillsides where the ground is turned and tumbled and disturbed. Any thoughts on that Mushroom John?

That would be sugar cane mulch where they grow along disturned areas of production. However, P. caerulescens does not grow in Costa Rica.

Copelandia cyanescens, P. aztecorum, P. mexicana and P. cubensis and Amanita muscaria all grow in Costa Rica at different times of the season.

The copes and cubes are manured shrooms, the mexicana is a field mushroom like liberty caps it grows with its mycelia attached to the roots of wild grasses in manured fields but not directly from manure and the P. aztecorums can be found in the foot hills in woody debris.

dfwphotoguy-
where do you plan on going while you're there? i've spent a great deal of time there, mainly onthe pacific coast. my family has a house in jaco.

arenal is sweet. you can see it spew out some huge rocks and lava sometimes.

hope you have fun!

Flying into liberia and staying at playa hermosa for a couple days while we figure out the game plan. There is no real plan except i want to go to arenal and monte virde cloud forest. Other than that i have no real plans except take photos and relax. So great smoke or mushrooms would be nice but i honestly will not be going out of my way to find either.

If you have been and have any thing to tell me about traveling down their email me at nategas1@hotmail.com

Thanks
N
