Day 4 - Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

Aaaaand it's another early morning start to get a bus to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.  Evidently, the 6:15 a.m. bus ride is not a terribly popular time (as evidenced by the absence of people at the stop).

Upon our arrival to the hotel, we embark immediately on a dolphin watching tour along to Coast, and come quite close to the very tip of Costa Rica -- as a matter of fact, my phone cheeringly welcomes me to Panama!

Well this is a rather awkward bus stop.  Life is like a box o' chocolates...

Our hotel!

 Monkey Island close to Manzanillo

Trying to avoid the sun at all cost, on a two-hour dolphin spotting tour.  Sadly, the dolphins were so fleeting, our cameras didn't catch pictures of them

Our guide kindly stops to prepare Pipa (a kind of coconut from which coconut water comes -- but not the coconut milk), which we drink and eat

We must be close to Panama 'cause my phone says so

For the rest of the day, we chill in our hotel, revealing in the fact that the next day won't be another early rise.  And of course, find the only French place in town for a crepe au Nutella.
