Nice hotel with a great location about 1.5 miles south of Puerto Viejo. Directly across from street. Rooms are very clean, though some amenities like air conditioning work only when they feel like it. Also, windows and doors have no screens so you can't open them unless you want to risk bugs flying in. Some parts of hotel feel dated, but the restaurant is good and complimentary breakfast was delicious. Hotel boasts two dogs and a cat....the latter of which won't leave us alone. And we love that : )

... path, yes I can cope with this, and then....... We go off piste, ok so there's a vague path, it's muddy underfoot, completely surrounded by jungle. We look at lots of frogs, I quite like frogs, green ones with red eyes, we listen to the sounds of the jungle, howler monkeys in the distance, meows, which are cat frogs high in the canopy. Lots of frogs, but still surrounded by jungle, our guide explains about some of the trees and plants around us and then we reach a large lagoon. A ...
... bridge. It is beat up and you have to pay attention to where you step. Not sure what it says about either country if this is your first impression.

Kat had given us the last of her Costa Colons which we used here, though it only cost a couple of dollars anyway. Coversion rate ...
... and things are looking good. Come on third and final night tomorrow. We have a wine and decide to cook up early and head next door to Tasty Waves where they had $1 drinks and karaoke night. We grab a few drinks, listen to the workers belting out tunes and smash some wifi before retreating for an early night. A run is again due tomorrow and we are both fairly tired by now so hit the sack nice and early before our last day in Puerto viejo and Costa Rica ...
... cooked tea again in the hostel and then went to the hostel bar. Drinks were quiet cheap so we stayed there quiet a while and played some drinking games! The drinks offer was all you can drink jungle juice for $9 so set us up for the night. We then headed down to a bar which we had been told was good on tuesdays night called tasty waves. It was very busy and had a great atmosphere it was a bar near the beach so there were a mix of locals and tourists. Great night ...
... to anything we know at home.
After we had settled in, we moved - that seems to be the norm with backpacking. As soon as you get comfortable you pack your backpacks and move on. I guess it is just us conforming to the Backpacker Code, and in particular Rule 2 - 'Never allow yourself to be comfortable - it's unfair'. Our next stop was 5 kms down the road at a place called Casa Moabi. This jungle hostel had received a 98% rating on ...
