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 : )

... by waves and rays we grabbed lunch at Lazy Mons and relaxed in the tropical beach breeze, it seems to be the thing to do in P.V. We spent most of our days renting bicycles, and cycling along the coconut palm lined coast, with butterflies floating overhead, exploring the warm, blue waters and spying on the sea life that lives in the reefs. We made our way to Manzanillo, a deserted beach town during the week, we were however told it's popular with the locals ...

Mel was not liking hotel room, thought was really dirty and worst she's stayed in. There were a few a whole way! Not impressed by weather as meant to be week of chilling in the sun! Mel decided to stay at another hostel so bit tricky as always wanting to know what time to meet. Emptied back as soaked so need to dry out. Trainers also still soaked from Corcovado. Lack ...

... there and 30 again with lunch and my legs still bear a strong resemblance to Sebastien of the Little Mermaid. Bummer, this might suck. We met back with the group and had dinner at a restaurant called flip flop. I had a good curry and a fabulous mango con leche, I want another one!, so I did. Morning of the 29th mom and I went horseback riding at Caribe Horse. After our taxi, sent by the company, had no idea where this was and ended up phoning for directions. It ...

... off a few times to look at the howler monkeys swinging from the trees.

Thankfully the road was FLAT the whole way bar two hills as it was hot and we had no gears on our bikes!!

We had some lunch, took a little trek over the creek to a view point and generally chilled about for a while before heading back.

On the way we stopped for some chocolate in a cafe recommended to us by an American wed met in the shuttle on the way.

I was ...

... yellow eyelash viper, score! However I forgot how rubbish my spare camera is, I miss my Pentax! I spent most of the evening just chilling out with people at the hostel. Shockingly I have dorm mates tonight! No sleeping alone in a dorm for me. Well for tonight anyway. Tomorrow I'm popping back into the sanctuary as Judy was ill when I left and I didn't get to say goodbye. I'm hoping they'll have space and I'll be able to stay for longer. If not its over to the pacific side for a few ...
