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.

After about an hour we finish with the top 2 students, Daykin being one of them and the ...
... lay down on!!! So there I was, alone with nothing to do! They had a Starbucks which was good and while standing in the line for the 4th time, I started talking to this boy from Brazil. He was really nice and we had some food togheter. No one could understand English at the airport and when I was going to order food at this other cafe (yes I eat a lot). It was all in Spanish and when I asked them something in English they ...
... what he's been up to. What I've been up to. I had told him that I was happy that I took this trip and told him how it was everything I needed to get away from my comfort zone. It was good to talk to him and hear him say he misses me. That today would have been better had I been there. I do miss him, and Lola. I miss Lola more than anything. That little charmer is filling my heart when I see her!
Off to sleep I go for tomorrow's adventure....
... which just ended.
Our local lifeguard in front of our house, Jorge (prounounced Horhay), sets up beach chairs everyday and rents them out. He also brings us fresh coconut to drink and when we're done, he'll cut them open so we have the coconut meat to eat.
Ticos, as native Costa Ricans are known, are extremely friendly. Everyone says hi and smiles are bountiful. There are lots of dogs here in Esterillos and even they are ...
