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 : )

Today was the day we were going to rent that surf board. We picked up bikes and cycled off to the beach armed with our books and lunch and water. We had decided we only needed one board as we couldn't just leave our stuff unattended on the beach. We practiced in the foamies for the day but after a discussion we decided to book a lesson for an hour and a half ...

We saw Gina, the lovely woman who owns out rooms, she showed us the today's improvements, they had re-roofed all of the showers and made a kitchen to use. So we went out in search of ingredients for dinner. In the evening, we planned on packing and heading out for a drink, but it got later as we were doing more research so I packed and read a little. A chilled few days in this Caribbean beach ...

... for us! What a legend this guy was. We gave him a small tip for his help. Gina even said how much of a nice guy he is going round helping everyone. We could have potentially been homeless for the night, which with all my electronic gear would have been hideous! We said goodbye to the man who we now knew as Cooly and dumped all our stuff in the room. Being quite open we decided to set up out mosquito nets for the first time which turned out ...

... day we had a delicious lunch at Bread and Chocolate with Klaas and Yora, who were also on The Stephanie from Cartagena. Throughout our adventure, we have met some great people, and it has been pleasantly surprising how often we will run into friends a few weeks later in a different country.

After our first hammock sleep, we decided to spend a ...

... appearance and odd speed, but for their flexibility. The sloth has more cervical vertebrae than any other animal on Earth, including the giraffe who actually has the same number as us and everyone else. This means the sloth can turn its head almost 360 degrees. It has a very weird effect as it twists slowly, never stopping. Cuddle time is very important time to the other volunteers who live for it. These sloths have captured their hearts and it makes total ...
