Souvenirs

Day seven, we were tired so we stayed at the hotel till afternoon and then headed out to the nearest town, Cabano. There were bigger supermarkets there, where I bought my first souvenir, ironically made in India.

We found a restaurant where we could order a traditional meal.

I also ordered a pineapple drink, which was huge.

After lunch we headed down a winding road to Montezuma, a tourist draw. There we found souvenirs made actually in Costa Rica.

For dinner we decided to try out the place across the street from our hotel.

A satisfying end to a relaxing day.

Tambor Beach

Day three in Costa Rica, Mick and I enjoyed a complimentary breakfast at our hotel and then headed to the beach on foot. It was hot, but overcast, so the walk was pretty enjoyable. We encountered a huge ant nest on the way.

The local flowers are absolutely stunning.

Once we arrived at the beach, I was surprised how warm the water felt. It’s the same Pacific Ocean we know, but the water was so much warmer thanĀ  what we were accustomed to in California. Besides one other person, we had the beach to ourselves.

We walked until we happened upon a resort, the quintessential paradise. Grass huts and everything.

There’s mostly American food on the menu at our hotel, so we had hamburgers for dinner.

We were the only ones at the lodge, so we had a peaceful evening.
