After getting off the boat from Tortuguero we jumped in Wesley and made our way over to the East coast and South to Puerto Viejo. We pulled into Puerto Viejo pretty late at night and found a great little place to camp on the beach next to a hostel. That night we went out for pizza and some amazing fruit shakes before tucking in for the night.

The next day we got up early and did a little shopping in town. We had a few presents to pick up and had a nice time exploring the roadside stands. After Devin did a little work we headed to the beach for some swimming and sun. The beach was beautiful with clear water and many palm trees dotting the beach. Following the bright sunshine we took a little walk down the beach to Rocking J's. Rocking J’s is an intriguing hostel that has mosaics everywhere and was definitely designed with an artist eye. Devin and I taught Bev Mexican Train Dominoes while we indulged in a pitcher to Tico Tea… a local beverage made with Rum and many juices. Afterwards we headed back to the van to make spaghetti. Devin and I then went to a local joint to listen to some live music, they were very talented and one of the guys even played a ukulele.

The next day we shopped around for some snorkeling gear and ended up getting a great deal on some equipment. So we all took turns snorkeling out in the clear water. Although there wasn’t much to see the beach was beautiful and it was a great day!

We headed to a new town just a little North of Puerto Viejo, so that we could get up
