Got on a 5am bus with Tyler and Michelle and arrived in Puerto Viejo around 11 in the morning. Got off the bus and walked thru the pouring rain to Rocking J's Hostel about ten minutes outside of the town center. The majority of the ISA Heredia group was already there which was kinda a bummer. They're all fun people but I prefer to meet new travelers or non-gringos.
So basically, since there was nothing to do we just got drunk. By three I passed out in a hammock, woke up around 6 famished. Determined to get some kind of caribbean experience, I ordered some jerk chicken for dinner. Mediocre. Still drunk, freakishly stuffed, and annoyed by the rain, Michelle and I passed out again in some hammocks before retiring to our tent at the early hour of 9pm. There was a live band going off downstairs that sounded like fun, I was just not feelin' it sadly.
Woke up saturday morning, walked into town to buy bus tickets, and headed back to Heredia. Caribbean let me down. We left early because the rain. I didn't get to even see let alone surf Salsa Brava, never found my rasta dread head man, and didn't even get any herb. I'll stick Pacific side for now on.
