      The grounds are lovely, the pool looks fabulous, just haven't used it yet. Food is really good even taking into account the difficulties the remote location must cause them. So far service is good. Clean as you can get in the jungle. Not sure about the price because it is included in the tour we are doing.

      Please forgive any typos, I'm trying to do this on a dirt road with a lot of pot holes and things are going better than I expected but is still difficult.

      So we left Puerto Viejo and started a five hour travel time to Tortuguero. Three hours of paved but narrow roads (with a short stop to clear some branches that came down right in front …

      Tortuguero Village and National Park

      ... canal tour and trail hike are both inside the park. The entry fees to the park is $15 per person and is only valid for a single day. It's a good idea to do both in one day.

      We had dinner at Buddha Cafe which was a short walk away from our lodge. It had a nice deck on the back side which was facing the river and was also the dining area. We had dinner watching the river, water taxis still running and watched the village life coming to a halt.

      ... in guided groups at the entrance, loud visitors not conducive to animal spotting, and all the paths made out of wood meaning noisy footsteps in most places! We decided not to pay the $25 per person for a guide and set off into the park to walk around the trails on our own. We spotted a couple of sloths, one iguana, lots of birds, raccoons and capuchin monkeys at the beach stealing people’s lunch from plastic bags! The beaches are absolutely beautiful, but ...

      ... and a deer swimming across the river! We got to see so much and it was money well spent, we even saw a river turtle as we were heading back. From there we headed back to Puerto Viejo for another few days to hopefully have a better time without the awkward threesome (the kiwi chick and the two germans). We got into a way better hostel and had a much better time. We hired bikes again and rode out to a beach further away but it wasn't as nice as Punta Uva so we rode back there ...

      As an aside, later in our visiting with Geraldo, when we told him we were from Pennsylvania, he mentioned that he had been to the US once before for a soccer tournament, and they had visited an amusement park in Pennsylvania on this trip. It turns out he had gone to Dorney Park, which is ...
