I was up sick all night on our last night in Puerto Viejo so we decided that we would spend another night and travel to Panama the following day. We had heard from some friends who'd headed to Panama that the weather was (for want of a better word) SHIT and was not looking like clearing anytime soon. Now we were seriously considering ditching Panama.
We then worked out that we could not stay in our hostel for another night and other places seemed to be full too. So in the space of an hour we went from staying in Puerto Viejo, to going to Panama, to attempting to get a bus to San Jose so we could head to Dominical (Pacific Coast) the following day!
So after managing to drag myself out of bed (and threatening to strangle Dave if he told me this was all part of the adventure) we packed up and walked to the bus in the torrential Caribbean rain. Unfortunately for us it seemed that all tourists had the same idea of getting the hell out of there and the bus was full. Lucky for Dave (and before I threw a tantrum) we were advised that another bus was going to be scheduled and would leave in 15 minutes time.
Yippee.. We were off to San Jose!
