When you stop looking

A travel blog entry by lisasadventures


... in Cahuita.

Puerto Viejo is an old pirate port, and everything you would imagine a costal Caribbean town to be. Think hot sun, rum, coconuts, rum in coconuts, surfers, dread-locked Rastafarians, seafood, tropical fruity plants, Bob Marley blaring from every car, shop, restaurant, and house, and people selling weed on every corner. In fact, we were followed by the complete collection of Bob Marley and a gentle cloud of weed haze the whole time we were ...

Whatta man-atee

A travel blog entry by andyandott


... and the manatee was gone. And that was it. Nothing else. So technically we did get to see a manatee, sort of. Then we went in the canoe to where the reserve's research and conservation efforts are focused. The reserve fronts onto a beach where leatherback and hawksbill turtles nest, and the rangers take care of the eggs until they hatch on the beach. Only 3 guys live on the reserve. We had a tour round where they live and how they work. ...

Back to the sloth sanctuary

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


... came back from Cahuita. Jeff told me that one of the tourists today asked him why the giant sloth went extinct, Jeff gave his answer and then the tourist said, "so not Noah's flood then?" - stupid things tourists say no 1. We then headed back to the volunteer house where Kat, an Australian volunteer, helped me with my suitcase and managed to break one of the wheels off. So now I have one wheel and one handle! Poor suitcase. First day tomorrow, I'll let you know how it ...

The super mental storm!!!

A travel blog entry by blondesontour

... the sloths underneath. I ran upstairs and got people and generally got absolutely soaked running back and forth trying to do jobs. You can tell who was actually doing anything during the storm as they were the wet ones. Pretty much all the staff including Judy and Ursula were there helping, drenched and then it was me and Daniella later who went to check on her section. Everyone else spent the time taking photos and holding bradys...COME ON!!! Kind of annoying when you're ...

    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 : )
