Lissy and I made it safely to Manuel Antonio!
Our driver, Mr
Mr. Freddy and I waited for Lissy about 45 minutes. It was totally crazy at the airport, much like I experienced a week ago. But then we found her and we set off for Manuel Antonio.
We stopped and took a few photos on the way....in Jaco Beach....in Hermosa Beach. The weather was sunny and warm the whole way here. I can definitely tell it is more humid here. We got to our hotel, Hotel Mimos, around 4 pm. It's a cute, little boutique hotel. We have a kitchen and a balcony and two beds!
We settled in and decided to go have dinner at La Hacienda. WOW, delicious! We shared a salad, a seafood platter and chocolate fondue with fresh fruit. I also had a watermelon fresca. Everything was super fresh and delicious, especially the seafood. The restaurant is a jungle vista and all open. There was live music, and it was really relaxing to sit and enjoy a nice meal.
MA definitely has a tourist feel to it. For example, at the restaurant we were among several tourists. It's a different feeling than being in San Jose, but I like it. Unfortunately, my cold is not improving. I almost feel like it has moved into my chest, I figure, I can fight through it the best I can, or complain about it. It's not like I'll get to Costa Rica anytime soon, so I'm trying to make the most of it.
