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 : )

... why we thought so many surfers came to the spot. The wave has great formation but looked really small in comparison to most of the waves we see at home (we did learn that the wave is a lot bigger in December and January and that when surfing in the Caribbean you get a much faster wave then on the Pacific coast). After our wave discussions Kev took a stroll along the shore to look at things and find things and pretty much do boy things. Me, I'm more interesting in lying ...

... samsonites on wheels. The boat trip along the river and canals was a good introduction to the area with quite some wildlife on the way like crocodiles. Tortuguero is not just about the turtles but also a lush forest surrounded by canals where you can do some canoeing and hiking. Luckily the majority of people went to resorts that are situated far away from town and we had a nice small homestay in town. Quite a laidback village. Our early morning ...

Caribbean time again

... at Hostel Pagalu which was a really great hostel that everyone recommended. There are many different beaches to check out, the water was beautifully clear and calm due to the coral reef that fringed the coast. We drank coconuts, ate Caribbean chicken many times, swam, sun-baked and chilled out for 7 days, Pura Vida! Well apart from what you will read in the next ...

And the rains kept coming.....

... as the first drops arrived. Within 10 minutes there was a fire-hose discharging outside!... It took a couple of hours to blow through, by which time I'd decided to wasn't going to head further up the coast to Tortuguero - my plan until then - but would go in search of the Volcano at Arenal. I was getting a bit sick of the endless rain and thought that heading inland I wouldn't be disappointed by poor weather, so I booked to take the minibus to Fortuna/Arenal the next morning.

... to come.

Next, the best job of the day; cuddling the babies in the nursery. We thought we had known cute, but no. All the kittens and puppies and fuzzy little whatevers we'd pet in the past would all have to step back one pace. Baby ******* sloths. Think about it; sleepy, slow, pokey-nosed, Muppet-suited cuddle bugs. It's crazy. So we did our duty as volunteers and cuddled the **** out of them. They really are extraordinarily puppet like not only ...
