Where are you going when finished in South America? Australia, Asia or Africa?

I forgot how much I love surfing

I am in Pavones Costa Rica right now. It is a stone's throw from Panama on the Gulfo Dulce. It one of the highlights here. Its a sleepy little surf town. Not many tourist because it is hard to get to. The roads are dirt. There are some fun river crossings.
I am staying at a place that rents cabinas for $13 & night.
After 3 days camping out, I needed a shower. I rented a surfboard and I surfed 3 times today. Once as the sun rose. The water temp is in the high 80's. And the surf is aweaome. It has the second longest left in the world. I had some epic rides even though I am not goofy foot and had to ride the wave backside.
Leaving tomorrow and heading to Panama.

Puerto Viejo Costa Rica

If you are going to Costa rica to party, you have to go to Puerto Viejo. And if you are staying in Puerto Viejo and you want to party, then you must be staying at Rocking J's. It is the biggest frickin hostel you have ever seen. And it is a dump! But everyone goes there because it is the place to be. It is a mini gold mine.

Look at this room at Rockin J's. There was almost no room to turn around. The 4 little beds were carmmed in to a dimly lit room with no personality. Compare this with La Paz Waterfall Gardens......where I just stayed a couple of nights earlier.

In Puerto Viejo, I rented a blcycle and rode it 10 miles down the road to Manzanillo. I was checking out spots on the beach to camp that night so I could check out of Rockin J's

This little Costa Rican girl wanted a picture with my motorcycle for her facebook page.
I put her in the captain's chair

Cahuita National Park was just what I was expecting to find on the caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Clear blue water and white sandy beaches.
Paradise
