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 : )

... same issue. Hotmail response was to say provide us a secure message and a link to go do this. Said link sends you straight back to hotmail so you can sign in and send them the message that you can't sign in. &()/&;$)@?!&$!!!!!! So to summarize, I have NO email access. No, back to the travel portion... We arrived in San Jose after some delays but nothing like what we experienced trying to get to Belize thank goodness. Only thing of interest was the well ...

... tourists to be ultra careful of. Our first visit was the monkeys. We stood outside their cage and watched the crazy 4-5 different types playing and jumping around the cage. There were so many orphaned babies in there. After a interesting introduction about the monkeys our volunteer said "ok we're going inside." I was quite shocked at first as I didn't know we got to do that. I was a little reluctant but Stuie was over the moon. Monkey's are his favourite!! Before ...

So we have a sloth sanctuary birthday, Ursula, Judy's daughter is one year older today. Jess and I bought her some truffles from Bread & Chocolate but we didn't actually get time time to give them to her! We attempted to find her a birthday card in Cahuita last night but apparently they are not the kind of things they sell here! So Jess drew her a really cool one with an elephant on the front. Much better then some **** supermarket card! It is also Jess's last day today, ...

... was a beautiful lake with fish that nibbled on your dead skin on your feet! According to one of my friends, people in Thailand pay for this kind of treatment!

In the morning my computer refused to boot, so ...
