We made it there and it's a cute tourist town. Lots of "Gringos", hotels, restaurants, surfers, touristy things. We stopped for a smoothie and ice cream and looked in a couple stores.

The afternoon was spent quietly enough, swimming in and relaxing by the pool.

He was certainly adorable and we're fairly certain he's what we'd seen up in a tree when we were at Hanging Bridges in the Arenal region.
