My next destination was La Fortuna so decided to break the journey overnight in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui. So from Cariari to Guapiles was easy and then a 4pm bus to PV - both bus times & travel times are wildly different than LP says, so although the former didn't work in my favour the latter did and I managed to get to PV in daylight.
Didn't take long to check out the only 2 possible accomm options & end up at the cheapest, Cabinas Laura, which was still pricey at $16 a night. The town was not as rough as expected though there was little feeling of it's location at the confluence of 2 rivers - never saw them except when entering & leaving town!
