Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Santa Teresa was such a great spot and just what I needed for a few days--itīs surf country and everything closes at 9.30 as itīs still the rainy season.  BUT!  After 22 days of continuous rain we arrived to glorious sunshine.  So, a couple of surf lessons with Enrique or Kee-Kay--Iīm sure thatīs wrong, lots of walking on the endless beach, some shopping and movies later I had completely forgotten about the journey there and had detoxed a small bit. 

Now that Iīve left the country, a little note about the roads in Costa Rica (and theyīre probably worse here in Nicaragua).  Woah!  Forget the Siem Reap-Bangkok road, this place is worse and with mountains!  Oh and they have just had the most awful flodding (good for rafting though:).  Just look at where Montezuma is on the map and then where Santa Teresa is.  I thought that it was about 11 km...It took us 3 hours!!  I honestly thought that I would die in that bus.  At one point the men had to get out and dig the road together so that we could make it up a hill.  Even the 4WDs were going really slow.  My stomach was in knots for the rest of the day.  I nearly cancelled the first surf lesson, but those strong waves beat it out of me thankfully!  Itīs not like Lahinch there.  I was dead chuffed too as Kee-Kay brough out a proper mini surf board for me on the second lesson...Iīm so close!  But didnīt realise that I was goofy (right leg forward) till the third lesson.  Of course I was going to be goofy!!  Great fun though.

So Santa Teresa was a great spot and I would love to back in the high season when the partying really gets started...The owner of brunells had some good stories and a free T-shirt each for Lianne and I, after he snapped us for the website.  And Lianne decided to come to Nicaragua with me.  Yeah!
