San Vito, in southern Costa Rica, was settled by Italians. I don't know when or why, and I don't really care. All that matters to me is that they are here and man can they cook! They bakery right across the street fromour hostle had great pastries, and the Itialian reastaraunt up the road serves a dynomite Pizza.
I know it not exactly the standard fare that the typical Tico eats, and that is what we are here to experience, but people seem to eat it here so why not us too?
Wilson Botanical Gardens
So besides gorging ourselves on cheese bread and dessert and enjoying the cooler air, we did make a trip out to see one of the highlights of the area, the Wilson Botanical Gardens. Just a short 6 km bus ride up hill from San Vito, the wilson Botanical gardens has beautiful groomed gardens (with plants most of us could not identify), trail systems through a rainfrest area, and, well, more gardens. My descriptions could not do this trip justice, so just check out the photos.
