Restos de histórico navío que emergieron en Limón regresarán al mar

The remains of the boat that has come ashore on Playa Grande near Manzanillo turns out to be older than previously thought, it is now thought to be from the 17th or 18th century. The national museum has decided to return it to the sea as they don't have the resources to preserve it so see it now or get on your diving gear!

The beach may be the focus of a visit to the Caribe Sur...

5 new year’s resolutions for Puerto Viejo

1. I will stop and smell the orchids. Slow down and appreciate the wonderful place we live in. Choose to walk or bike instead of drive. If you do drive give priority to the wildlife, pedestrians and bicycles! More at sustainable Puerto Viejo

2. I will shop locally and support local artisans and merchants. Puerto Viejo doesn’t have big box stores and we can keep it that way by supporting local artisans, local products and merchants. Chocolate made here supports the rainforest and local jobs and doesn’t have the carbon footprint of something shipped across the world. See all the local shopping options here

3. I will eat a mostly plant based diet. Keeping meat and animal based products to a minimum will keep our planet and bodies healthier. See our vegetarian and vegan page for lots of great places to eat and buy yummy vegetarian and vegan food.

4. I will give back to my community. Much of whats makes this a wonderful place is the efforts of people in the community and visitors to make it that way by volunteering their time or donating to local causes.

5. I’ll use less stuff and recycle what I do use. Maybe start with quitting plastic water bottles; our tap water is safe to drink here so bring your reusable water bottle and fill it up. I can recycle plastic, cans, glass, and tetrabrik.

This boat recently appeared in Manzanlllo

It will probably be a new landmark as it's sure not going anywhere. Just hope it isn't leaking anything. Don't think that's what we wanted for Christmas but Manuel Pinto's photograph makes it look pretty nonetheless! Feliz Navidad a todos!

From Moldy Carrots to Bagels and Cream Cheese

This blog post is a couple years old but what's really interesting is the tales of shopping here in the 90s before PV had been discovered by the outside world. It's a far cry from the farmer's market full of fresh organic produce and the international restaurants from all over the world we have now!

Want to hike from Caribbean to Pacific?

Very interesting new option to see parts of Costa Rica hardly anyone ever sees! El Camino de Costa Rica is a 2 week hike across the country. This would not only be an incredible personal achievement to walk from Atlantic to Pacific but would develop rural tourism in Costa Rica and share the benefits of tourism with different communities. Lots more info at in English and Spanish.

It is fairly early days for this project so would recommend doing this in a group with a local expert. If you need help, Gecko Trail Costa Rica could help you organize transport to/from the starting/ending points and other details.

Work to widen route 32 to the Caribbean Coast will start in January

So there will be some road delays.

But the good news is that Sansa will increase their schedule of flights from San José to Limon to 3 times a day starting Dec 15. There's more info on flying on the transport page and you can book a shuttle to/from the Limón Airport to your hotel there too.
