The departure from the Peace Garden and Lodge was uneventful. At 1pm on the 16th we met everyone at the San Jose Airport without complications. Everyone, all 14 of us, made it on time. Unbelieveable! The van picked us up and we headed to Quespos with plenty of cold beer, water, snacks, etc. Along the way we stopped to watch a dozen crocidiles basking in a river. We forgot to bring a chicken for their dinner.
Arriving at our Quepos residence we checked the place out and picked our rooms. Seven bedrooms,three kitchens, two jacuzzi tubs, one roof top whirlpool and a ground level swimming pool. From the top floor whirlpool and deck we have great views of the bay and sunsets. Pura Vida!
We had dinner at an Italian restaurant, firgure that one out, that was great! Plenty of wine, tasted like two buck chuck and the owner would not tell us the name. Probably made it in the back room. Returning to the Casa Miramar everyone retired early. Long travel day for most of the crew.
Tuesday brought out Dora the Explorer, visiting a beautiful beach in the Manuel Antonio National Park, a couple of condo sales sites, lunch (a cheeseburger in paradise), and cocktails at an outdoor restuarant watching the sunset. Dinner was at the Barba Roja, do not ever eat at that place. Totally over rated. Serves sucked, food was worse, and the bathroom was a disgusting mess. Thank God, for a nice glass of Scotch on our roof top deck to chilax for the evening.
