2nd Day in Puerto Viejo

A travel blog entry by mrweinstein


Today was a bit of a mixed bag, with a lot of early morning rain and no sun at all even after the rain ended.

We had every intention of going into the town of Puerto Viejo early in the morning, but the torrential rain and wind made that impossible since our hotel is over a mile south of the town and we have no transportation.

San Jose to Puerto Viejo

A travel blog entry by mrweinstein


After a smoggy day in San Jose (but a comfortable night at the Adventure Inn) we were relieved to be heading to our main attraction of the week...Puerto Viejo on the Southeastern coast of Costa Rica.

Jen had taken care of the reservations for a van to drive us there, and they picked us up right at 7:30. We took on four more passengers …

Reggae, Bike Rides and Amazing Food

A travel blog entry by jfeezy


Puerto Viejo was a cool spot with some pretty good beaches and consistent Reggae beat coming out of every bar and restaurant. We ate some incredible food, although I'm sure it can be partly attributed to the fact that we had been eating essentially the same tastes for the last 5 weeks at the hotel in Sarapiqui so anything new was a welcomed change …

No Longer a Slave to my Hair

A travel blog entry by gilmer


I went for my normal bike ride this morning. Since it was Monday, the roads were not that busy which was a good thing. It's amazing how narrow the roads are here. I guess when they paved the roads they must have had a strict budget. Joanne and I joked that it was not in their budget to have the roads expanded a little wider... which would have been better for everyone.. esp. the walkers and bike riders. As you are riding your bike, there is not really any room for you and the ...

Christmas in Costa Rica, Goodbye Jennay!

A travel blog entry by bteam1


... this was crazy (based on our border crossing experiences) but after doing it it makes a lot of sense! No customs, no paperwork, no touts - only cheap booze!

The next two weeks were whiled away, mooching is probably the best way to describe it! We wandered around the town, browsed throught the colourful market stalls, went to the beach, went for coffees / coctails, hung out on our balcony talking *****! It was the perfect ...

    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 : )
