Our friend Bonnie from home is one of the best connected people either of us know. During our previous travels she connected us with people in Singapore and Malaysia and here in Costa Rica she connected us with a couple she's friends with back home. We enjoyed a tasty lunch and great conversation with Colleen and Peter who come to Costa Rica each winter for a couple of months. They were full of helpful advice on what to see and do while we ...

... others off we headed out. After three quiet hours on our little bus, we arrived at the port. We loaded our provisions on to one boat and after filling our pichingas with tasty mainland water and a sneaky last ice-cream, we boarded our boat to the island. Those in the front had a lovely ride, those of us in the back got soaked to the skin! Ronnie the boat driver pointed out the beaches along the coast of the island and I felt renewed excitement for what lay ahead staying in such ...
