After a thirty minute boat ride, a couple of bus rides, an hour of waiting in the sun, a border crossing and a taxi ride we arrived in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a cute little town on the Costa Rican coast. This place is surrounded by rain forest on one side and the Caribbean Sea with plenty of beaches on the other side, making it a very beautiful place.

This place has a couple of cool restaurants (with veggie food :)) and bars, many of which play reggae music. Yesterday we had a little taste of the nightlife at a local reggae club after eating dinner at Chile Rojo that served really tasty Thai food.

Today we took a really nice bike ride along the coast all the way to Manzanillo, an even smaller village about 13km from here. It was really cool cycling there through the rainforest and then stopping every once in a while at the beach for some swimming. At a couple of places we heard some noise in the trees and stopped to see what it was: monkeys were jumping around on the branches!
