There are waves, a school and you can rent a board!!. So if you´re up for it..its do able here!!
Salsa Brava is a favorite spot fro surfing!!
I read there were 44 nationalities present in Puerto Viejo and sitting on a street side table ...I´d say its true . Nice when you´re sipping a cool drink to take in the livelyness of the town!!
I'm not a " bird watcher" but I enjoyed seeing all the colourful birds on the Atlantic Coast. These Blue- Gray Tanagers were always there munching on bananas near our breakfast table at our hotel!
The red legged honey creeper was another bird that was usually there to see us while we ate breakfast.
We attended the funeral of a friend here. What an incredibly upbeat ceremony! So much singing, clapping, amens etc. I found myself tapping my toes much of the time.
