A nice little town, but I'm afraid to say it was a disappointment for me! And the Spanish were going to go to Cahuita...I was so looking forward to a Caribbean atmosphere but even though there was a nice atmosphere it was a little demure. Plus the locals didn't seem to have any problem passing comments ALL the time. So, I guessed that this wasn't the place that I wanted to stay to learn Spanish. We did have a good time though, apart from Gabriel being mugged...Lots of partying :) Ok, the nicest day was the day after the guys went loco and stayed drinking all night- nearly 24 hours celebrating Eduardo's fake Birthday. So the chicas headed off on rented bikes to cycle down the 13K coast to can't remember the name. The scenery and the houses were beautiful and I was very pleased with myself that I managed in Spanish all day...well! We also celebrated the other Eduardo's birthday while in Puerto Viejo and I also fitted in a private Spanish lesson with a Greek lady. It was really nice though to sit on her porch and see the normal life plod along with lots and lots of people coming and going. Families tend to be big in Costa Rica and adopting random people is also common. For example, they had adopted an old lady with no other family. And a fairly big crab did his best to join in too!
