    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.

    Finishing in Paradise

    Puerto Viejo was a place I really wanted to visit but didn't think it would be possible being so far south of Costa Rica, thinking that my schedule wouldn't permit such a detour. I felt really fortunate to have enough time to go visit it and was looking forward to finish this trip with 3 days relaxing by the beach in this little Carribean paradise …

    We woke up to more rain so had a quiet morning at the hostel and made breakfast. Once it stopped raining, Steve and Jan played football in the garden and went for a run to one of the nearby beaches and had a swim. Kerry went into town for the bank whilst there had a little shop round and went for a hair braid done. We relaxed back at the hostel in …

    We woke up fairly early this morning as we had an early night last night so we chilled out for a few hours before heading into to town for some food shopping for the next few days. Whilst in town we had a look about and chose something we could all do for the afternoon. We decided we were going to take the trail along the coast heading towards …

    Snorkeling Adventure

    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...
