Adios playa, hasta la vista bugs
The town Samara was quaint. We found beach access and stumbled upon a cool place (Lo Que Hay) to eat and returned daily for happy hour and food. The waves were bigger then any picture I found during research and we had a blast kicking them. Our hotel Mirador was up on a hill with a mountain breeze and wild life (large reptiles, bats, butterflies, leaf cutter ants. And a pack of howler monkeys passing through on our last day - they sound like a large dog howling and being strangled ... or rather a monstrous strangled howl). Spacious rooms, private patio, large pool. 5 minute walk thru town to the beach. It would be so fun to update the space with a new sofa, outdoor cushions and shower curtain,
But the sand bugs were relentless, first attacking Lucy, then showing up on the rest of us. I suppose we should have tried bug spray a day earlier. Chaz got sick and our legs were covered in bites so we opted out a day early and headed to the city, Alajuela.
For our last full day in Costa Rica we will either check out Poas Volcano and the national park or head to San Jose and check out the capital.
Pictures taken on our last morning, Sun comes up early, 5ish. But this morning I was waiting for the clouds to break and the fog to lift, but that didnt happen. IF the sun was shining brightly, it would hit the side of the island and the green would sparkle.
