... and hotels. The path curved into the jungle, across a suspension bridge and more houses, then to a palm tree covered beach. We took in the sights and sounds of the jungle before turning around. At our local beach we were greeted by a galloping white horse, who seemed to be let out during the evening to run free. Paul has been desperate to see a sloth, and would not be leaving Central America without spotting one. On our third day, we took to the paths early and ...

Because of weather conditions (again??) we're being delayed (again??) into Puntarenas. Only by an hour, but they've only given us an extra 30 minutes at the other end of the day.

Then in the mid 80s the bananas developed a fungus problem, the prices fell and there was labour unrest. So the United Fruit Company left. It was a disaster for the town but the government decided to help by establishing a duty free shopping area of 50 shops to stimulate business. They were also aware that many Costa Ricans (or Ticos as they prefer to be known) crossed into Panama for duty free purchases so this provided a way of cutting back on that trade. It did ...
