We stayed there on our way to Puerto Viejo from Playas del Coco. It was a nice place to stay, a little more than halfway of the distance to drive. It was just oo long a drive to do in one day with the two kids. There was a lot of traffic as it was the Sunday starting Semana Santa. We enjoyed this hotel, very simple but pretty with birds and a fish pond. Beds were comfortable.

Silence that was then rudely interrupted when I plummeted into the end! It was such a ...

As we visited the gift shop on our way out, we met this woman who sponsors a project for making art and clothing using recycled materials. She is wearing a bag made from pop-top soda can tabs.

... some of the Australians amongst us who know the bull sharks of their country were muttering that they hoped someone had informed the bull sharks of this. Apparently they do come in the shallows that side of the world. However no one was the victim of a Jaws moment so that was a bonus!

We also played beach volleyball which was a lot of fun although I must admit I was pretty diabolical at it, at least at first. Luckily I was the ...
