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.

So yesterday ended with a trip to the police station to lodge a report on the theft of my bag. Any misconceptions of me knowing any spanish whatsoever was also thrown at the window at this point. After making the decision yesterday, I was going to ask the base camp Manager, Lily to take me to the police station. But good old Mum & Dad beat me to the punch. She came to me before I had a chance to ask her and said that we should go to the ...

Up at 8ish for breakfast overlooking the Pacific, then local bus to Manuel Antonio.

... we'd stayed in the tourist areas of LA (which Santa Monica isn't). As a tourist, one's experience of a place and its people is obviously highly mediated because you generally only see and hear 'what they want you to see and hear', but after 3 weeks I couldn't speak more highly of the diverse places and people we saw and heard. The cities and the natural phenomena were spectacular and the locals were warm and engaging. Little things made a difference, like there ...
... see in the Pictures.
Took the bus from the Park to the bus station in Quepos (under $300 c), about a 20 minute ride and got my bus ticket for Jaco at 9:30am tomorrow. Went to the bank so I am all set for tomorrow.
Later on a nice shower, a nap, came to the lounge, cooked a little dinner (a soup), talked to some people and I am updating my blog and thinking of going to bed as ...
... the start of the long summer/Christmas school holidays in Costa Rica). A French couple joined us and then we were off. We must have seen at least 20 different species of bird on that three hour trip. It seemed that we couldn't go five feet without the guide pointing out a heron hiding in the undergrowth at the edge of the river, or turkey vultures circling overhead. He took us for a three part tour starting on the riverside, moving into the mangroves and finally taking us to ...
