Where I stayed
We woke up and got our rental car and opted to change our plans a bit to stay close to the airport for the night flight in. Only one flight a day comes in and its at 8:30 pm.
We drove 20km away to Playa Hermosa and called the rental agency of the villa we had reserved for the end of our trip to see if we could have it early for the night. The were very accomodating and while they got the place ready we drove down to Playa Coco and ate, drank and shopped. I was in desperate need of some flip flops, my feet were so hot.
We saw so many neat people. one guy was carrying these huge fish on his back just walking from the beach and another guy had just got a huge tuna and was riding his bike up and down the road and stopped at each place to see if anyone wanted to buy it. We just relaxed and people watched. It was so nice. Around 4 we went back to the rental agency, picked up our bags where we left them and then went up to the villa
We got changed into our bathing suits and headed down to Hermosa. We watched the sunset and swam and saw all the plankton that lit up in the water. it was like glitter it was so cool!
We dried off and covered up and drove back to Coco and ate dinner at Papagayo Sushi and Steakhouse. Dinner was ok, i enjoyed mine, i think the guys were a little disappointed. Afterwards we walked up and down the little strip ( not much to it) and talked to locals. Now these locals were mostly Americans in their 50's and 60's who came and never left. We had some baby Costa Rican Cigars and headed home. I made use of the jacuzzi and we tracked down a pay phone to hopefully locate my bags.... no word so far!
