my gorgeous sloth, sitting eating in a fruit tree outside the hotel
We got into cahuita today, finally i made it too the caribean side of Costa Rica, there was quite alot english ppl on the bus, which shows that we all flock to the caribean, bugger the pacific.  First impressions are good, the beach is white sand and the sea looks beautiful, the park is very close to where we are staying, and there is such a chilled vibe flowing thru the little town.  It almost feels that we are somewhere other than Costa Rica, its got a whole different look, which is good, and finally the houses here look older than 15years, that is one of the things that has bug me, that Costa rica is all new, there is no sign of the past, i like coloninal and cobble streets and old spanish charm, but costa rica lacks this, esp in San Jose, granted the national theatre is stunning and so is the post office, but it gets lost in the big neon lights of mcD.
Another reason i am liking this place is, i have got my picture of a sloth, finally i have one, everytime i have seen a sloth, i either forgotten my camera or its too high up in a tree, but today i got some good shots on my cheap camera. 
I will go and find a decent place to eat, and walk the beach, is this the place we will be spending Christmas!!
