Travel Blogs from Playas del Coco
Let's just say this... walking uphill is a lot harder than walking downhill... :)
I walked and walked.. huffing and puffing.. thinking to myself how great this exercise was for my body... taking breaks on and off.. plus taking video and photos... I continued on my journey to the top of the hill.....
Regarding picture and video taking, I am sure you will notice that I took tons of them. :)
You will also notice that I decided to take the main path ...
... Valentines special. It included salad for starters, King prawns, Mai mai fish, and rib eye steak.... the best steak we have had here so far... and a bottle of wine.

While we suffered a minor hiccup of going left instead of right at the edge of the parking lot, it was smooth sailing for at least the first 500 metres...

We were blaming our exhaustion on the time difference between here and home- but it turns out that there isn't any. So perhaps just the red eye flight and old age taking their toll.
Went for a dip in the ocean, surprisingly COLD! Came back to the condos we're staying at to find the wallet that I unknowingly lost last night had been returned- completely intact. Gracias a Dios y a Costa Rica!
