Puerto Viejo de Talamanca






We're now spending a few days down on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica in a place called Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. We took a bus down from San Jose, about 4 and a half hours, but some fantastic scenery on the way. Puerto Viejo itself is a fantastic little town with a real Caribbean flavour - incredibly relaxed with lots of reggae! We're just chilling out and enjoying the atmosphere - and the beautifully warm sea which makes for fantastic swimming. The place has quite a new-age hippyish vibe so there's loads of vegetarian food :)It's Costa Rican independence day today so there have been lots of celebrations, parades etc. On our first night we went to a great party on the beach and Rob even danced!! Tomorrow I'm hoping to conquer my fear of bikes for a cycle along the coastline to spot some wildlife. Watch this space for photos of injuries...
