Shortly after checking out the town we headed for the Piscina Natural which had been recommended to us by David & Gabrielle who we had met earlier on the bus. We also ran into while walking on the beach here but they had decided to stay somewhere else. The walk was beautiful and followed the ocean. It took us about 20 minutes to reach our destination. On the way we passed a soccer field full of players and spectators. Considering how remote we felt we were, it was a bit of a surprise!! Finally we arrived and felt like we were in paradise. The natural beaches with the coral reefs, palm trees and small fishing boats were breath taking. It soon became our favorite place in Costa Rica!!
That evening we were celebrating our 15th Anniversary and took off on foot to find an "appropriate" restaurant to celebrate and we hit the jackpot!! The Restaurant we at at was the best place we have eaten since arriving and we sat outside about 10' from the ocean with the most wonderful view! Even more exciting, they actually had wine!!! We splurged on a delicious bottle of wine and the wonderful meal consisted, of Filet and Snapper (fish for me, steak for Don) with salad, vegetables and rice--couldn't have been better! And...the owner, Ron, bought us desert!!! It was a wonderful evening!!
The picture isn't great of the restaurant but we forgot to get one when we walked by the next morning!!
