After crossing the border (Panama-Costa Rica), it was the surprise ! No more steel, tall buildings and traffic jam. It was nature at its excellence. We arrived on a beautiful sunny day at Hotel "Le Cameleon" and headed straight to the beach. A wonderful beach, very calm and very clean. The tour of the hotel was made by the GM who explained us the facilities of the hotel as well as some information about the plants in the garden and the Higuanas chillin at the top of trees.
The rooms were also a surprise, to have that much confort in the jungle. It was a perfect harmony of modern design and nature.
The food was very tasty, I specially recommand the Spaghetti with Fresh Lobster.
In the Village of Puerto Viejo, there are so many bars with very relaxed atmosphere and everybody is so welcoming. I simply felt like in the movie "Rhum Diaries" with Johnny Depp.
We stayed there for 4 days and decided to stay for 2 extra days.
I was actually sad to leave Puerto Viejo, but I'm sure I will be back soon.
