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.

... lunch we also walked across a bridge to look at all the crocodiles. I counted 23 (in one little area!) and that's not counting the ones under the water! They can grow to be 7 meters long! That's 21 feet! Wouldn't want one of them to pop! (Anyone know what movie that's from? Spoiler alert: Nemo) After the crocs we finished our journey and came into view of the Pacific Ocean. It is beautiful. Quepos is this little touristy town right on the beach and our hotel is ...

... most of the story except for the "break" on our tour where we had the most heavenly ocean swim off an amazing white sand beach - could have floated for hours - we are in heaven.
Decided to go 'off property" for dinner - crazy rough ride up to "Ronny's" for the best meal yet. Ceviche - I had mixed seafood, R had shrimp - best I had ever tasted! huge seafood meals after that "starter" - glad for bumpy ride down ...
... cab in thirty minutes. Forty five minutes later and Deb calls them back, she keeps talking in English, they in Spanish until the lady on the other end says "uh hu" and hangs up, so we hope it may be on it's way. The lady who owns the place asks us where we are off to and it turns out they have a table for ten people booked there so she says she'll add two more, looks like company for dinner again. One more phone call to what was described to me as the 'pirate cab', and we get ...
We've made our final drive back toward San Jose, in order to fly out tomorrow. We can't believe the time is almost ended and we look back on our many experiences with happiness and fullness. As we see more and more big homes of Canadians and Estado Unidenses and read more signs and menus in English, we see how lucky we are to have found this sweet little place here called La Encantada. It's a picture perfect, ...
