Rainy Days Happen

The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is a true rain forest and beach experience and it is impossible to predict what kind of weather you will get on your vacation. Along with the many beautiful sunny days perfect for beach lounging and daiquiri drinking come a handful of rainy days-not so good for beach lounging but great for daiquiri drinking! Fear not my future guests! If you come prepared for both, we think you’ll find yourself able to enjoy whatever the wind brings. There is a ton to do and see here in the rain and as long as you’re interested in relaxing and experiencing the rain forest, you will have a memorable time here in Playa Chiquita, Costa Rica.

Here is a list of our favorite rainy day activities:

Lounging in a hammock with a good book. There’s just nothing like relaxing to the sounds of the jungle on the front porch of a bungalow. Our little book exchange has a nice selection and all are welcome to it.

Explore the jungle with a local guide. Truth be told, a lot of the coolest critters amongst us really like the rain and are almost only out and about when the skies open up. For example that cute little Costa Rican tree frog everybody wants to see, colorful snakes only some of us want to see, and lots of other wacky and wild animals.

Massage. Treat yourself to a very special rain forest massage at one of the area’s studios or spa’s. If you want something fancy, Pure Jungle spa offers things like chocolate facials and papaya scrubs. Or take a quick stroll down the road to get a relaxing massage at Body & Mind studio by Denise.

What about those daiquiris? The numerous restaurants from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo offer everything from local Caribbean chicken to fine Italian and each meal (and beverage) is a special moment.

Just breath. Take in the cool, fresh rain forest air. There’s really nothing else like it.

    Hi mate, I just read your blog post and there’s a lot of useful info which is great, but I’ve gotta say your site was way down in the rankings on Google. I’ve been using this plugin for WordPress which has really helped me drive more traffic to my own blog – WP Authority Links Plugin which you can get at http://bit.ly/1zu5uRT

    I have finally found a syestm that works for me. I have two files set up on my desk top computer and an external hard drive and they are labeled Family Photos and db Images. When I download my photos they all go onto the desk top computer first and sorted into the appropriate file (Family or Professional). I go through the desk top files and purge the ones that are hopeless (right after downloading them). Once this is done I send the files to my external hard drive.From this step I go on to the next step .I have two very powerful flash drives one for the Family Photos and One for db Images I copy the external files to each appropriate flash drive. I store the Family Photo (these are categorized by Year/Event/Date) flash drive for future use such as developing and putting in an album but the db Images flash drive I process on my lap top. I do a second purge on the db images flash drive only the ones I plan on selling/blogging/manipulating etc. go on this drive the best of the best if you will. Then I send them to their appropriate categories Animals/Flowers and Plants/Insects/Boats/Birds etc. that way when I want a particular photo I know where it is easy access and I have three locations where photos are saved (I eventually delete the ones on the desk top after transferring them to a CD just because I am anal like that). And nothing is saved on my laptop. I work with my family history and I have a huge amount of photos dating back decades so I have had to find a manageable syestm For me, it is all about easy access. Hope this helps.
