    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 : )

    ... and South America and was used a currency by the Aztecs (I was paying attention). It's amazing how simple the chocolate making process is when you go back to basics. The beans are harvested, fermented, dried, roasted then ground for 72 hours, near the end of the grinding 28% sugar is added and thats it. Simple and quite delightful.

    ... rain drops here and there. And when you feel raindrops like that, it obviously means a terrestrial downpour is coming so we hightailed it at to Kaya's. Within 20 minutes it was pouring down rain, and we were all glad to have missed being caught in it! We hung around the restaurant below the hostel for a while longer, chatting and paying cards until it was agreed we were way too tired, even though it was only 9 30 pm (but 10 30 panama ...

    ... he might be having a fit or something but when I went over I saw that his head was right in the corner of his enclosure, next to the head of Mocha, a female who was sleeping next door. I then realised that he wasn't having a fit but actually gyrating against his platform, looking at Mocha creepily, while getting jiggly with himself. He then stopped and passed out, then he started again and the ate and went to sleep. Typical male. It was half disturbing and ...

    ... creept up those ancient trees trying in vain to strangle them. Swaying palm trees lined the golden crescent beaches while hibiscus and other vibrate tropical flowers emerged from the growth. You could smell the fertile air that seemed more oxygen rich. As you walked through town there were small thrown together restaurants promoting typical Costa Rican cuisine where the standard rice and black beans took on a spicy Caribbean flavor. The real rusters with their long dredds ...
