Finally the beach..... I have been land locked for the past 2 months and it has been great to stick my feet in the sand! Puerto Viejo is on the Caribbean side of Costa rica and as soon as we (met up with some friends i met in Antigua)arrived, the sun came out for the first time in days. We played in the waves all day, watched the crabs scurry along the beach, and listened to reggae at night while gazing at the moon over the Caribbean coast. I enjoyed jugo de piņa with every meal and stayed a cool hostel called RockinīJ's..you could stay in a hammock, or a tent, or the tree house....and the whole place was painted or covered in mosaics..they have lots of empty spaces for guests to make their artistic mark..i only regret that i didn't get to spend more time there.
