During my research on Puerto Viejo, I fell in love. Like, the head-over-heel mega crush but also extremely deep kinda love. I don't really know what that means. I think you get the point though.
I decided visiting is a must. I plan to arrive in November of this year for a 2 week stay. I absolutely can not wait!
So, I researched how to get to this site. First, there's the flight. From San Francisco, looks like I'll have to land in San Jose, Costa Rica. I know this is cheesy, but I live in San Jose, CA. So my trip will be from San Jose -> San Jose. This makes me happy :)
Flight cost? About $650 round trip. Not awesome, but not terrible!
From San Jose, I will take a bus to Puerto Viejo. This seems to be about a 4-5 hour bus ride. Guess how much it costs? $8. Yeah. I doubt it will be comfortable, but for that price you won't see me complaining!
44where do I sleep?!45http://www.rockingjs.com For $8 a night, I can choose between a tent (with mattress), or a hammock for a bed. I am 100% sold on this!
What's my goal of this trip? To learn as much as I can from as many people as I can!
I can not wait to go, and can't wait to share my travels with you all!
