Guest Comment
"The major purpose of our getaway was relaxation. We spent more than half of our week hanging out and used the pool every day. I loved getting in the pool about 4 o’clock each afternoon and watching the clouds gradually form over the Pacific in preparation for the evening rainstorm. Most of the time, Doug would be in the lookout tower drinking dark Costa Rican beer and watching boats, surfers and pelicans. After we realized that maps do not convey distance in any useful way, and that Costa Rican roads are not freeways, we adjusted our expectations and committed to only one excursion that involved real driving. That was to Manuel Antonio Park, two hours south down the coast from Playa Hermosa. We heeded general advice that paying for a guided tour would be worth our money; this suggestion turned out to be true. Our guide, Efraim, was especially insightful because his father had been the first ranger at the park.. Efraim carried a good telescope and zeroed in on creatures great and small: bats, frogs, toads and crabs not visible to the naked eye. The highlight of our two-hour walk was seeing howler monkeys jump long distances above us in the canopy. We also heard the male howler cries that sound like a puma’s roar, and are meant to establish territory—a thrilling moment! During our week, we almost worked through Paul’s suggested restaurant list, making our own breakfasts then enjoying lunch and dinner at very low-key inexpensive local places. Because there is a working fishing fleet at Quepos about 30 miles away, fresh fish (tuna, dorado, mahi-mahi and sea bass) was available everyday in most restaurants. Tropical fruit drinks were on every menu and we had our share. Judith, the site-manager suggested we check out a workingman’s restaurant a few miles down the coastal road (turn right instead of heading toward Playa Hermosa) where truck drivers stop. Two restaurants, the Colonial and the Typico are side by side. You can recognize them by the assembly of big rigs in the shared parking lot. We had an excellent “blue plate special” of main dish, rice and beans, fried plantains and macaroni salad at the Typico. The cultural experience of watching soap operas on TV and being in the local scene outside the more touristy areas of Playa Hermosa and Jaco felt authentic and satisfying, like the casado meal. Everywhere in Costa Rica you see “La Pura Vida” as a motto on billboards, t-shirts and in the names of hotels. “Pura Vida” seems to mean living life “purely” by enjoying the beauty of each moment. Our short week felt like a tease; we realized it would take at least a month to truly explore the many ecosystems and regions of Costa Rica. But the Albacore House provided a great home base to make a start in exploring this very accessible paradise. "
