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.

... of location vs action, of background. Carlos, our instructor, showed us the three steps in making a surf board then "go around and take photos and let me feel what the shop is from your photos". I don't know what it is about today but I definitely wasn't happy with the photos I was taking at the surfboard shop. I think I was hoping for more creative shots but was focusing too ******* having to deal with manual settings of my camera. The second location ...
... happy to come up to you with tails wagging.
That's not to say you shouldn't let your guard down about your belongings. The house we rented is like Fort Knox with a fully enclosed fence/wall surrounding the property, bars on all of the doors and windows, triple deadbolts and an alarm monitored by ADT. The 12 foot double gates that you open to pull your car in and out of the property remind me of the gates in the movie, King Kong. It takes ...
... La Corona, ducking beneath passionfruit vines, squelching between chicken coops, weaving beneath papaya trees and tall, strident sugar cane, i see a wiser, more diverse approach to produce and self sufficiency. They can't and wont let it happen again. Talking to the farmer, a quiet, twinkly eyed campesino called Diego, I quickly assess that as Nicaragua's number one export, standing in this very field we are on the frontline of a highly political, economic and ...
