Ten minutes after arriving, I’m swinging in a hammock high above the Caribbean Coast. I’m looking down through a dense rain forest and I can hear birds and insects. I’ve already seen monkeys on the drive in from San Jose.
We drove along the coast for the last hour – blue skies and palm trees and not a lot of people. Through small towns and over one lane bridges that were just a tiny bit scary. We’re unpacking, showering and getting ready for dinner, and afterwards the hot tub is beckoning.
