10 FACTS ON PUERTO VIEJO

PREVIOUS / NEXT

COSTA RICA by KRISS on 18 november 2015

10 FACTS ON PUERTO VIEJO 1 - The sun wakes up at 5am and tucks itself in at 5pm.
There is more or less 12 hours of night and 12 hours of day.

2 - There are little tiny ants that will bite your feet and inject you with a little venom that burns for a minute or so.
They are everywhere.

3 - Coconuts you buy for a drink also often have a delicious soft and jelly like flesh that you can scoop with a spoon.
Carry a spoon.

4 - Coconuts you pick yourself from a tree won’t be as good as the ones you buy because they need to rest for a bit.

5 - The sand is perhaps the softest sand on the planet in a humid and spongy way.
It really feels good and amazing under your bare feet.

6 - The sand contains black particules that will stain your swimwear for good.

7 - There are dangerous currents when there are waves and you are carried further from the shore at every wave.
I believe a few people drowned.

8 - Prices are more expensive than you expected but the following foods won’t cost much : bananas, cocos, pineapples, sweet potatoes, potatoes, rice, beans, courgettes (zucchinis), aubergines, mangos, oranges, mandarines, papayas, I am sure I am forgetting a few.
The following foods will cost you an arm and a leg : avocados (such a shame), cheese, vegetal milks (rice, soy, almond), anything imported.

9 - Prices are not clearly labelled in supermarkets, they are put on each item individually and not on all of them.
Perhaps out of shame for their expensiveness ?

10 - Many times a day you will feel like Chewbacca and his kind live in the place.
It’s only howler monkeys.
