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.

Work began at 7:30, but actually started earlier as we continued "wrangling" cows back to their rightful field. The guys worked the fence line and cleaned up the soccer field for an evening wedding of one of the former Tias (Kim). In fact, the wedding ceremony is going on right now as the strains of Pachelbel's Canon fill the air.

En route to the jungle we passed over a concrete bridge and the guide suggested that if we wanted to see some crocodiles then here was the place to do it. After pulling over and giving us instructions to walk across and meet him at the other side, we did just that and after only a few steps into the bridge, it became ...
... and of course fries, rice and beans. The beer was luke warm and the rum and coke very light on rum. The service was great even given our language barrier. Total for dinner for the 3 of us with 2 drinks each was $47 US. Cash only as "the machine" was down.
Sitting outside overlooking the street, we watched Puntarenas come alive for the night. It was great people watching! The street was packed with the citizens of Puntrenas, families with ...

Brought home about a dozen coconuts from the tree next door and stacked them on our ...
