Hotel Banana Azul

March 2, 2010   With Alan's dental work completed we headed for the Caribbean coast.  The drive through the rain forest, banana and pineapple farms was lush and green, a stark contrast to the Pacific coast.

We found an ecolodge with 12 guest rooms, nestled between the black sand beach and the jungle, Hotel Banana Azul.  A set menu was available for breakfast and dinner (which was included in our room rate), so we didn't have much reason to leave the resort.  But we did some exploring in Puerto Viejo, this is a big surfing area and a multicultural experience.  With a population of around 2000, the latest census found residents from 49 countries.  Resting in the hammock on our balcony, we could oversee the activity in the pool and jacuzzi and decide if we should motivate ourselves to indulge.  Our stop here was a nice conclusion to our Costa Rica trip.
