At the top of a really long, nasty, skinny gravel road.
Santa Elena is the town (all 2 blocks of it) to the North / NorthWest - eh some direction.
And Monteverde is really the area.
And the cool reserve with huge leaves and trees.
Santa Elena has a grocery store!
Monteverde Cheese Factory Cheese!
And all of this in walking distance from the hotel!
Oh and an ice chest!
Needless to say we went into the grocery store a few times.
Once I even heard someone yell out "Heather".
Figured I was hearing things.
Jim said, "Yeah, you think you heard your name and know someone here".
So I looked around and there was Freddy from The Sloth Sanctuary waving.
Uh, what else.
Got the tire changed for...
Get this ~ $1.50 US!
Yes, one dollar and fifty cents. Did I mention that I really love Costa Rica?
Enjoyed killer dinners at El Marquez and Restaurant El Sabor.
But didn't really enjoy the monkey show on top of our roof at 3 am...
Critters skittering around.
Dropping more things.
Skittering some more.
And we enjoyed our makeshift bar...
