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 : )

A travel blog entry by pkgregoire on Feb 06, 2015

Today we rented bikes so we could tour the town and nearby places. For breakfast, we ate at a small little bakery and had amazing coffee.

While there is rained the whole time but ...

He got up twice which I thought was impressive for only doing it 2/3 other times. Afterwards we left and I was still getting stomach pains. We got a large chicken margarita pizza to go. I had a slice of pizza and fell back to sleep again for a few hours. I finally got the urge to get out of bed and wanted to walk to the bakery next door with ...

... we saw at Corcovado, they were often smelled before we (that is to say our guide Nito) spotted them. Whether the anteaters regularly enjoyed some ganja making them smell like weed or tragically ended up getting smoked by the locals remained unclear.

It is sooo much cooler here temperature wise too. On the Pacific coast the high temperatures and humidity meant that even when we were doing next to nothing we were still ...

... 3600 square foot home in wine country. I went from wearing a nice platinum Rolex to wearing a washed up plastic watch I had found on the beach. Carmen's Limited Edition fully loaded extended Yukon Denali and her 2008 Corvette, were now "ADIOS"!

When wise people say "it is not about the stuff". THEY ARE CORRECT!

... going to miss her! I can't believe I have been here a week now, what the hell! It always seems to be going so slow and the vooom, it's over :( I should probably ask how long they want me doing this research project for because I honestly have no idea! Really enjoying it though and I ha got some gorgeous photos. Judy said they were really happy with my notes so far to, which is awesome as I had no idea if they were going to be what they wanted.
