Day 2- drive to Quepos

Lunch across beach before Manuel Antonio

Parasailing @ Manuel Antonio

Quepos on map

Stay at Villa Romantica… probably a 2 star but quite sweet….. and it had a pool…. yeah!

First go off to Manuel Antonio Park to look for wildlife on our own (US$16) but we’re not very successful. It was so hot(30C) & so very humid we just went to the beach in the park to cool off. Even that wasn’t very successful ….water temperature was apparently 24!!!

I cannot believe the price of food (bbq chicken….$13CAD)& liquor in grocery stores and food and drink in restaurants….. way more expensive than at home in Victoria. We went for dinner later (at El Guarato) that was excellent but required a small loan! All prices include taxes plus 10% tip whether you want it or not. But on the other hand local bus is about .75 CAD and a taxi $6.75.

More pictures to follow. Too hard to download very many!
