Perched on the edge of a cliff at the end of a dirt road on the outskirts of Junquillal sits this lovely hotel. Rooms are basic but clean but the pool is magical. A quick walk down to Playa Blanca will have you swimming in shallow rock pools full of brightly coloured fish and the odd octopus. Take your snorkel gear.

I woke up, walked outside, and noticed a toucan flying over my head. I already knew this trip was going to be an amazing experience. I sat outside taking in the warm air and bright sunshine, getting excited for my zip lining adventure today with my family.

My family and I started getting our sneakers on, and headed into the car to go to Pura Adventura. I couldn't wait to see the beautiful landscape of Costa Rica from enormous heights.

... happy. Then for the next few hours we saw a couple of guys weaving up and down into the street then back onto the beach and on and on looking for them. I am guessing they were found though because there were a bunch of woman riding them later on.

Bambi decided that today would be a good day to teach me how to surf. I suck at it. It is not easy. AT ALL.... There are sooo many different parts to it.

First, you ...

... right next to it. SCORE 1 FOR THE ROOKIE! And then I got lost. Dammit. I only technically went wrong slightly. I managed to guide us back to the sand channel where the mooring line is and I thought that I had to go straight right from that point to get to the next big rock. I didn't. What I actually had to do was go up a little bit and then go right. So close! I navigated easily to the shark channel though and found the clown shrimp area even though they weren't there ...

... completely separate air source so I used that instead. This went fine except I needed to hover more rather than kicking to stay at a certain depth but all in all it was fine. During the surface interval I didn't have to change any tanks or give drinks and fruit out to people but instead relaxed on the front of the boat with Laura and Martin. It was lovely actually chilling out for it instead of rushing around and made a really nice change! Next was the search ...

... Pacific the sunsets here are always beautiful and mesmerising
to watch as the golden orb of the sun sinks below the sharply etched horizon
out to sea shortly afterwards painting the sky in an array of soft pastels.
Bliss! For just $5 pppn we tucked ourselves in a corner of Manuel’s extensive
camp ground just far enough away from the big coconuts hanging in the palm
trees.There were good showers and toilets, a nearby tap and sink for washing
dishes ...
