The entire complex is located on the top of a mountian ridge some thirteen hundred above the blue Pacific below. Every night has a beautiful sunset which should be enjoyed while sipping a glass of wine or enjoying a sumptious meal. The rooms are spacious and comfortable the service is second to none. If there are any down sides the first is a lack of water pressure in the shower and changing temperature very minor. Second if you are not a fan of heights the driveway could be a challange but they you would not have the spectacular vistas from every room. This is close to the national park for jungle tours and the beach. A positive thumbs up.

Back at the dock, there was a local market, so we had time to peruse it before setting sail for ...
... authorial overseer. Except maybe his silent, sweet wife, who thwacks fresh lunchtime tortillas into submission for our group's pending almuerzo. That's the thing here, simple living in harmony with life's daily tasks and rhythms is what brings the greatest comfort, and stability. If only the west could learn how to amalgamate into that, it might carve a new way that served to benefit those in the fields as much and hopefully more than the boardroom executives buzzing off the big ...
... other than staff have these badges and she is wearing it with pride. Another couple at the bar also loved her and her sketcher shoes and wanted to know what her facebook page was. The price of fame eh?
So on to today.... it is another sea day and of course the weather is gorgeous and in the late 80 degrees. We went another hour forward today so getting closer to UK time again...only 5 hours behind you guys now. Because of this hour forward we missed the ...
... start of the first real clearing and White-shouldered Tanagers and Scarlet Macaws were seen along with Ctenosaurs (a large lizard) and Coatis.
The temperature rose significantly during the morning and we turned back before reaching the end of the trail. We had foolishly taken only a litre of water and we were beginning to feel rather dehydrated by the time we got back to the car.
The afternoon saw us stopping for a cold drink in the village ...
