We had to get up at 4 a.m. to get to the airport to fly to San Jose, Costa Rica. So we had a long travel day! After we landed in C.R. we took a 4 hour bus ride to Puerto Viejo. I could hardly keep my eyes open the entire bus ride as I was so sleepy! Greg kept waking me up to show me things out the window. The beautiful plants and jungle and banana trees!
Puerto Viejo is a small town on the Caribbean coast. It has a Jamaican feel to it. Very laid back and artsy. We’re staying at Hotel Guarana, a super nice, charming, comfortable place with little cabinas. There is lots of green jungle surrounding the area with beautiful beaches.
Also, here’s a good link to a packing list for Costa Rica. A good list comes in handy for remembering things to bring.
