My initial reaction to Ticans is that they are beautiful. It is not uncommon to find tan skin, long dark hair and green eyes. Awesome combo and it is everywhere I turn here. People too are very friendly. Everyone speaks English but I am good at keeping them talking to me in Spanish.I got to see some fun iguanas in this area too. From here we bussed it to Liberia at 5am and transfered buses toward Canas and Upala to head towards Volcan Tenorio. The bus rides were easy. The city of Liberia is very modern and you can find your Burger Kings, Taco Bells, and more. There is allot more money in this country than Nicaragua, it is apparent the american investment is vast. I had a good time at these beaches, but my advice is this. When you find your nice beach, stay there. Don't search for greener grass because it doesn't exist. Instead what you find is wasted time. Enjoy beautiful when it is staring you in the face. AKA, goto Playa Hermosa and stay there. Coco is good for food and shopping, but nothing more. Pescado Loco Bar and restaurant probably had the best seafood I have ever had and it is a block away from the beach in Hermosa. Go there!
I will see this beach again in my dreams. Ciao.
