A restless night and I was up early in Liberia, Costa Rica. A cold water shower and a quick breakfast at Mc Donalds and Ricardo and I were off to Granada, Nicaragua. Did I say Grenada? Then why have I spent the afternoon sitting on the beach in San Juan Del Sur, an idyllic cove on the beautiful Pacific Ocean? Simple, after the frustrating two hours spent at the border crossing, we decided we needed lunch and Ricardo had an urge for lobster. So why not take a 20 km detour to the Pacific surfing village of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua?
Over hill and valley, past rambling brooks, the occasional cow or horse in the road, such a beautiful ride. Then suddenly before us lay the most manificient view of the Pacific cove. Miles of beach, surrounded by beachfront hotes, thatch roofed restaurants..........! We loved it. Picking a nice hotel, with oceanfront pool, restaurant and bar and we were home. And what? Only $65 per night for a double with air and a sitting area.
Lunch? Something simple! Lobster cerviche, salad and two freshly caught lobster tails. Plus two Coke Zeros, All for $20. How will we ever leave?
As usual, Ricardo had an idea. Up early tomorrow for a day trip to Granada and then back here to San Juan Del Sur tomorrow afternoon for more beach and another lobster dinner. The next day? At this point, we have no idea.
