We had an awesome long weekend in the Caribbean! A group of us spent most of our time in Puerto Viejo, though we did take one incredible bike ride to Playa Manzanillo.
One thing I love about this country is the extreme diversity you can experience in such a small place, and the Caribbean coast feels worlds away from La Fortuna (it was technically an 8 hour bus ride, which kind of is worlds away). The culture is so different, it has a rasta vibe, more Jamaican than mainland Costa Rican. The food is different too, less rice and beans, more seafood and spice, me gusta!
More pictures and updates to come but for now I have to rush my tired self off to class, so some advice from a tree will have to suffice:
