... with waves … yes I know I’m crazy. This is where I also met the family from France, nice folks with whom I hung out with for the rest of the afternoon between surfing, wave-catching and chilling on the sand. Yes, I did surf … well “surf”, more like: “who knew getting trashed around by waves could be fun?” I was bruised, scratched but happy as a sloth on his log!

Finally, today I ...

... a local neighborhood in a gated community, Villas del Oceano, that looked like a possibility for a long term stay, just a 4 minute walk to the beach. Met a nice family of 3 from Ontario outside the gate who were renting a home from a friend there. They graciously walked us into the neighborhood to show us around. We got their contact information, along with the information for the builder of the neighborhood who also lives there and the name and ...

7- There are an extraordinary number of prostitutes and eager customers in Jaco. During one of our first night forays through Jaco we stopped in at the Beatles Bar for a hamburger and fries It was only after I noticed the sign in behind DH that was advertising hourly rates for rooms in the attached hotel that we realized we were the only 'couple' in the entire place- others were either older American dudes (apparently referred to as 'grampas') or local girls ...

... brownie points associated with being fair trade. Starbucks can (and definitely do) buy just 5% of their beans from farms complying with fair trade standards, yet still get to use the fair trade logo on every cup, chocolate bar, cookie. If that doesn't smack of a con, know this: the odds are stacked that your soy grande with palm oil syrup is most likely that remaining 95% - cheaply produced, poorly picked and roasted. ultimately, very very unfair coffee disguised by ...

... a couple of toiletry articles and maybe on purpose. First she has lost her razor and I only have one so she is going to have to buy one. Second her comb, and if you know me at all you know I don't have one and she is going to be a Rastafarian if she doesn't get one soon. She still looked great for dinner.

    We like this place so much, we have been here 3 different times since our stay for 3 months in Costa Rica. The family who owns it are wonderful and service is amazing. Amenities include a pool and the hotel is just steps away from the beach with good waves for beginning surfers or for a lovely stroll on the beach. Sunsets are breath taking here as well.
