Day 12
On Wednesday night we tried to get at this resturant called Agua Azul, which is on the top of another building overlooking the ocean.  But it was closed when we got there, so we decided to take Lonely Planets advice and eat at El Gato Negro. We were pretty surprised because it wasn't as expensive as we thought it would be and the food turned out pretty good. That night we did nothing and went to bed so that we could get up early and spend most of the day at the beach.  Yesterday we got up and made our way down to the beach, after waiting 45 minutes for the bus because we missed the first one.  We decided to rent chairs because for a full day it was only ten dollars.  We layed out from about ten until one.  During that time we were attacked numerous times by the beach vultures, whice are people walking around trying to sell tourists ceramics.  Katherine decided to go parasailing too.  Later we decided to venture around to the different vendors on the street, which were selling everything from jewelry, wraps, t-shirts, things made out of coconuts, etc. After that we were resuced from the beach by Brittanys family, who then took us to their hotel, which had an amazing infinity pool overlooking the ocean.  Which was a nice change from the ocean water.  There we met a girl, Flo from England, who gave us lots of useful information about Bocos Del Toro, Panama.  So I think now we are going to go there one weekend.  Later yesterday we ate at a resturant on the MA beach, and headed back to the hostel to take naps before going to Coconuts.  But when we woke up it was torrential downpouring and really bad lightening so we decided to hang out at the hostel.

Day 13
Today we have to leave the beach for Alejuela, where the airport is, since Katherines flight is so early.  We are going to go to a few of the gift shops again before we have to be back at the hostel at 1230 to be picked up by Grayline.  It kind of sucks because its the 4th of July and we are doing nothing exciting.
