Simple but friendly retreat with little courtyard. Like a little community of it's own, just a couple of minutes walk from the main street with lively bars and restaurants.

Travelled by public bus for 3 hours and stopped off on the coast fro a boat trip along the canals. Saw 3 toed sloth in first tree, followed by others, and also blue heron, egrets, and lizards. Poured with rain after lunch and legs got soaked! Then picked up a mini bus to Cahuita- a lovely lazy town on the Caribbean …

The bird walk was pretty cool. Although the first thing we saw was a mammal. And it was in the garden at the Inn. It was a large rodent called an agouti. Kind of like a small Capybara if you’ve ever seen those in ...

... the day was spent poolside, and at one point a big family of white faced capuchin monkeys came swinging through. They were climbing and swinging in all of the trees, and a mama with a baby on her back came walking right by me. So much fun to watch them! We took some tandem kayaks out and explored a small side channel, and then had more pool time.
The rain started up that evening and kept on through the next morning until it was time for us to leave. We had an hour ...
... lost somewhere in San Jose but eventually she walked in. The next morning it was another early bus which would drop us in Santa Teresa, a cool surfy town on the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula. It was a bus, ferry then bus again and took 6 or 7 hours. The surf looked alright so i found a decent board and managed to get it for $15 which gave me all afternoon and the whole next day to use it. I got a few waves over the next 2 days and was pretty happy to be in the surf ...
