      This was my second time at Rocking J's. It's truly a unique hostel, unlike any other...The entire place is a mosaic of tiles and broken glass, carefully pieced together as a massive piece of artwork. It's right on the beach, which is not much of a swimming beach, due to sharp coral, but very clear water, and there are places to get in. They've got many hammocks and hang out spots throughout, and a small bar/restaurant right in front with decent food and drinks. On the weekends, and in the busy season, this place can become a raging fiesta, but most people don't enter, who are trying to get away from the crowds.

      This weekend I went to Puerto Viejo. It is on the Caribbean side of the island and it is definitely the rainy season on that side of the country. I rained every morning and all day on Sunday. The city was super cool. It was a very laid back vibe and there were lots of venders on the road. The hostel was huge and had a big mix of people from all …

      Our last beach excursion of our trip abroad was to Puerto Viejo at Rocking J's, an uber popular hostel known for their cheap hammock and tent rentals. While the idea of sleeping in a hammock is awesome in theory, we were smart enough to choose the tent. Ambar, Katie, Veronica, Christian and I all went together. We were told to stay as a group in …

      Today was a great day.

      We rented cruiser bikes from a bike rental place here in Puerto Viejo and biked to Manzanillo, a tiny town nine miles south of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast. The bike ride was really fun, although I was a little nervous as it was the first time back on a bicycle since my face plant into the cement off my bi...
