Nice decor, great location

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 : )

... post. We have between 5-25 volunteers here at any given time who walk the beach every night with us and give up their vacation days to travel to this remote location and help out. It snot all bad, as you can hopefully see here as we do have occasional sun and all the beach you can handle. It requires that we make our own games though, as you can see the first-ever coconut bowling taking place ...

... and I, to stop, which we broke haha. Driving to the next location I've noticed the cows are fatter here than other countries (not including North America) and I saw the dole headquarters here. Now at Puerto Viejo we checked in then walked the town looking at the shops. Then went for dinner and back to our hostel because we are exhausted. It feels like we are extending our South American ...

... is, but some things were similar to the UK. I had a pancake for breakfast, I was expecting a few, it was average and almost £2! We then went to the shop to get some water. A 2 litre bottle was £1.50, you can get water for 20p in England. It's ok but it would be expensive if we stayed here a while. It was now about midday when we thought we'd check out the beach. We walked through the forest path alongside the beach which was ...

... wasted no time in heading out on a ‘sloth hunt’. We hired bikes and followed the small road along the beach surrounded by rainforest. Within 5 minutes we’d spotted one of our furry friends sitting quietly on the forest floor. We were that excited, it felt like Christmas. For those who don’t know, "it’s a rare site to spot a sloth sitting on the canopy floor" (Attenborough 2001). ...

... the last two and a half minutes, no big deal, food and drink was really good, I had hot wings and fries, Deb a cob salad which was half the size of Puerto Viejo, all washed down with lashings of cool beer. We order a taxi and are home by eight, another raucous night out. In fairness we are getting up at five in the morning as we're off on holiday to Tortuguero in the morning.
