Day 15: 31 October 2013

Cahuita -> Puerto Viejo

I can't believe it is our last day in Costa Rica today!!

We had another long lie (well long compared to other days but we were still up at 8) then headed for breakfast (crepes with homemade local chocolate) before heading to get the bus to Puerto Viejo. We found somewhere to stay then went off to find out how we could get to Panama tomorrow. Tickets bought we headed to Playa Cocles, one of the nearby beaches, stopping on the way for some fish tacos.

We found a small path along the beachfront which took us back to town. We had a look at the market stalls as I was keen to buy something to remind me of our time here but I couldn't find anything I liked. We had seen a bar earlier with a super cheap deal for a beer and a slice of pizza so went there for one before going to find an internet cafe to print the documents we needed for the border crossing tomorrow.

As it was technically my birthday already back home we went to get some cocktails to celebrate. The first one was HORRIBLE. I felt like it was the universes way of reminding me that I am getting older and can't drink cheap crap anymore!! The second place we found was better though :)

Although I liked it here there isn't a whole much to do! Plus I didn't think it was possible to find a place more chilled than Cahuita but the pace of life here is soooooo slow. It was nice for a day but I am glad to be heading to Panama tomorrow for a change of scenery.
