Flying to the Caribe Today!

Today begins what has become almost an annual tradition of spending a week in the Southern Caribbean of Costa Rica, during September when this rainy rainforest has the least amount of rain. After trying a few other hotels, I’ve settled on Banana Azul as my favorite and it is right on the beach (one of the few!) in a favorite room with balcony overlooking the beach and hotel gardens. It is one of my most relaxing weeks of the year! This Puerto Viejo area is south, near the Panama Border and quite different from my other Caribe fave which is north of the port of Limón and in a great wetlands wildlife national park called Tortuguero.

I have just two morning bird hikes scheduled, one in the Cahuita National Park and the other in Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. Otherwise I just “hangout” at the hotel and beach, walking both the beach and a forested beach road where last year I found a bonanza of butterflies! 🙂

Hopefully, starting tonight or tomorrow I will be posting on this blog directly from Hotel Banana Azul with same day blog information! 🙂 And if you ever get the idea that I’m having great time living in my retirement here in Costa Rica – you will be absolutely correct! 🙂

¡Pura Vida!

    1. Thanks Steve! And in Costa Rica, so far, all trips have been “buen viajes!” 🙂 The Caribe Sur is more “laid back” than anywhere else I go which aids the relaxation part of a trip. Travel with me through the blog with same-day posts this trip.

  1. This place is so fabulous and know you will have a wonderful time and give all of us a beautiful time!!

    Thank you Charlie!!!
