    Movin' On Up (TheCoast)

    February 17 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    The gringos are subtly discouraged from taking local buses and as a result taxi fares are super expensive. The proprietor at the Tamarindo hotel wrote me a note in Spanish that helped get me on the bus to Playa Del Coco. Consequently I paid $4 USD instead of the $70 quoted by several taxi drivers. Granted,the trip took 2 hrs instead of 1 but I have the time! I have not encountered this phenomenon in any other country.

    Now in Playa Del Coco, I continue to see sunny skies and warm temperatures. My stay here is at M+M Garden house that has plenty to offer in facility and tours. It’s a potential long term stay in the future.
    Iguanas , howler monkeys and colourful birds are delightful unless they are looking to steal your breakfast!
    Tomorrow I am off to nearby Playa Hermosa
    and an AirBnB.
