    Unfriendly Staff Marred the Stay In An Otherwise Beautiful Place

    Beautiful property and setting right on the Pacific coast. Rooms were very comfortable, although they had no place to sit and write. Our breakfasts were satisfactory but nothing special. Our main complaint, however, was the attitude of the restaurant staff. The only place for wi-fi access was in the main building and there the only place to sit was in the restaurant. The staff was clearly not happy having us there. We came away with the impression they felt it would be a great place to work if it were not for the damn customers. We took it as a reflection of how they were treated by the hotel management.

    ... snacks. When I was walking home on the beach, I was watching the surfers with envy and a longing to get back out there. Back at the resort I ran into Rodrigo. He told me how well I had done. He said I had learned in one lesson what normally took three lessons. It was an amazing feeling! I had been nervous all morning but pushed myself to step out of my box and do it anyway and I'm so glad I did. Watching the sunset the only thing I could think of was surfing again ...

    Today was a lazy day. We put on our bathing suits and went aft to the pool, laid in the sun for a little bit, did water aerobics in the salt water pool all by myself, and after showering we took a short nap. We were still in port so took a tender over to Quepos, a sleepy little town with not much to see or do. We found an internet cafe at which wifi was free if be ...

Each bathroom has a unique design, and the best part is the husband-and-wife chef team that make us unbelievably delicious dinners each night. I am enjoying a ceviche appetizer they prepared as I write this out on one of the decks with the family. This is the life... All ten of us went into Manuel Antonio National Park on the morning of December 29. It took ...

    ... unfortunately for Aslak, and went on enjoying my evening.

    The next day our patients, Sarah and myself braved the outrageous heat and visited the Manuel Antonio National Park which cured everyone up nicely....briefly. We saw all sorts of wildlife from snakes, to sloths, to monkeys, to raccoons etc and plumped ourselves on a class little secluded beach for a few hours.

    That night we lost Aslak to his bed due to the prolonged ...

    ... and so he was putting a label close to the snake to show the danger. I have no idea how the snake stays near the sign. It must be akin to the deer crossing signs in Banff where the deer just naturally know where to cross! Dago continued to search for frogs for Caleb. We must have looked for close to an hour in this last ditch effort before we left the park. I found a toad - apparently ...
