Well I wasn't positive I was the only guest but as I sit here at the only one of twelve tables with a table cloth on it I am pretty sure I am the only guest here. Now San Jose during the rainy season seem like a guaranteed beautiful day until early afternoon around 2:00-3:00. The owner here told me that they had two straight days of rain. Costa Rica is a small country but has I believe 52 different micro climates. So knowing the exact weather in each area is tough. For example during the heart of rainy season in San Jose which is September and October the weather in the Caribean is the best of the year according to the owner of Bungalow Malu, my wifes and I favorite place to stay in Cahuita just 15Km or so north od Perto Viejo. So if your looking for a nice fall get away I would definetly recommend that as one of your stops. It is maybe 50 meters from high tide and has the coolest stone and wood combo bungalows and they are working on a house that sleeps 8+ for those big family trips. A room that slept four cost us $70 per night incluing tax. There are also some great little restaurants our favorite being Cha Cha Cha. Playa negro in front of the bungalows is pratically deserted and you will see one of the locals on a bike guiding eight or so horses to what I pressume is work(horse rentals I believe) and home in the late afternoon. Quiet a sight to see actually it really fascinated me.
For today the plan is to head back to San Jose maybe via Nosara. I learned last night there may possibly be a high road I missed so maybe I will check it out. Last night a party for six came into the restaurant while I was at the bar. They were raving about seeing the lava flow from Arenal Volcano, my ass it flowed. I said “What time did it start flowing?” The response ÄT about 10:00” Damn here I am a guy that goes to bed between 4:00AM and 6:00AM most mornings and I can't stay up for this. Muy tonto(very silly) oh well I don't think it is going anywhere I will be back with the family.
