First Week in Costa Rica

Hola! I´ll just start by saying I have no holiday snaps to show you just yet as I can´t find an internet cafe with memory card slots/readers.  I´ll share them when I get home.

We are now in Santa Teresa after taking a bus, ferry, another bus (where Colin got pick-pocketed) and another bus after that.  I won´t dwell on the pick-pocketing, it wasn´t a nice experience but luckilly they didn´t get away with much.  Anyways, all that travelling (including 3 flights to get to Costa Rica in the first place) we arrived exhausted and found a hostel.   

Cuesta Arriba is at the north end of a long rocky dirt track full of surf shops, hostels, cafes etc.  The beach is a minute away and we are surrounded by rainforest, regularly frequented by howler monkeys who like to wake us at 5am.  They´re definitely not called howler for nothing!!!

Sufing, swimming, sunbathing, yoga, reading, eating and sleeping have been our main activities.  The beach is beautiful, the people friendly, and the vibe very relaxed.  We love it here!!

On Monday we are travelling south to Manuel Antonio for a few days before coming home on Friday so I will update then and upload some photos.

I hope you are all well and have had a good week.  Sorry if this has been boring without any images.

Ps, check out Jade´s blog.  She has posted about her days with me so far here and here
